    track Ode to Satie a brand new composition from DeJohnette The piece draws its inspiration from and pays tribute to the short atmospheric Gymnopedies composed by French pianist Erik Satie in the late 1800s They are very peaceful compositions especially when you consider the frantic world we live in says DeJohnette They have always relaxed me so I drew inspiration from them when I composed this piece I wanted to conjure up the moods they represent When you hear the track you can hear Satie s influence Ebony is a reinterpretation of the DeJohnette composition originally wrote and recorded for the 1980 album Special Edition I had never recorded it on solo piano so it was fun to do it that way My approach here is totally different from the arrangement that I recorded with that band It s in a number of different odd meters three four seven four six eight which just makes it a fresh take on one of my past compositions Silver Hollow revisits the classic DeJohnette piece first recorded for the New Directions album with guitarist John Abercrombie trumpeter Lester Bowie and bassist Eddie Gomez in 1978 Silver Hollow is the name of the area where I live in upstate New York says DeJohnette It s a very special piece that celebrates an equally special place It s a song that captures the love I have for this beautiful part of the country Every artist has a muse and DeJohnette has Lydia his wife and life partner of many years Lydia which DeJohnette originally recorded with Dave Holland John Abercrombie Alex Foster and Mike Richmond for the New Rags album in 1977 is his ode to her This song gets better and better every time I play it says DeJohnette Lydia is a very very important person in my life She is my inspiration A lot of things I have accomplished in my career would not have been possible without her wisdom and inspiration I m blessed I have a great muse I love her very much The version of Blue within this set is at least the third version DeJohnette has recorded since he first composed it for the Gateway Trio s Gateway 2 album in 1977 He recorded it again with Special Edition a few years later This version is more rubato than previous versions says DeJohnette The tempo is more elastic And it s in a minor key which makes it a dark but beautiful melody The second of the two new pieces on Return is the churning Dervish Trance a song inspired by the whirling meditative dance of the Sufi Dervishes I had actually come up with the melody while touring with the Spring Quartet an ensemble consisting of Joe Lovano Esperanza Spalding and Leo Genovese and myself We performed the song live several times before I adapted it further for this recording I titled the composition Dervish Trance being inspired by Sufi who I had seen a few years ago
