We all start from the same place and build from there, gathering references, structures, techniques, modes, nuances, etc. and, as artists, we strive to build something purposeful. Well, I Should Have_* is the culmination of hours (almost 3) of conception with the goal to bring something, in the tradition of the great vanguard jazz artists like Miles Davis, Roach, Mingus, Monk, et al, close to pure spontaneity. Jazz is the ocean_I am just one wave forming one curl, crashing once onto some remote beach somewhere in time. And that wave makes a small imperceptible change in the slope of the sand, upon which at some point in time a baby turtle will walk across, leaving his trail for just an instant, before the tide washes it clean. That's a pretty cool analogy. More to the point, I do not play piano and I made this jazz album. Some tell me, "Hey, Jon, tone it down." Some even say, "Really, Jon?" A few have said, "Get the fuck away from me or I'll fucking punch you in the face." I know the risks in making this album. I know what it is like to do something that no one else would think to do. Most would call this reckless. I call it jazz. What you are about to experience is an aural auto da fe. I am the jazz daredevil. - Jon, New York City, July 2015 Well, I Should Have_* was recorded and mixed by Mark Desimone at Soundtrack NY, except for Amy's Song (The Bum Steer), which was mixed by Loren Bouchard (Bob's Burgers, Home Movies). Jon is accompanied by Scott Kreitzer (saxophone), David Finck (bass), and Jonathan Peretz (drums). "Deal With the Devil" features Aziz Ansari and Kristen Schaal.
