I want to share with everyone, an experience that is deeply
meaningful to me -- the making of a work that I feel driven to write,
celebrating the life of the wonderfully talented trumpet player,
amazingly gifted teacher, and dear friend, Laurie Frink. I feel
compelled to share this as a thank you to all of you who have been there
for me, the band and our recordings for over the past 10 years. You've
been listening to Laurie play on every single recording we ever made
starting back in 1992.
This work will be purely
about trying to express beauty in the way Laurie did in her music and
her vibrant life. She was not only deeply talented musically, but also
visually. Few knew that she was a magnificent potter, as well as a
lovely poet, too. There were so many incredible layers to this
I'll be sharing this
story through streamed online videos filmed at my piano from my home,
let you see sketches of the music as I find my way to the end of a piece
that will hopefully be worthy of Laurie's name. We'll share video of
our rehearsal as well. We'll premiere the work at the Jazz Standard
Thanksgiving Week in November, for those who can come. If not, you'll
see the premier and much more here through video.
I hope you'll be moved by the experience. Maria Schneider
