Rhapsody: The Best of Pacific Woods

A Musical Mosaic

The HarperCollins Dictionary of Music defines "rhapsody" as "a title used ... for a relatively short composition, free in form and expressing a particular mood."

Saxophonist Harrison Goldberg and bass guitarist Dave Jordan have fashioned a collection of the best tunes from their previous albums, along with two new selections (the opening track, Rhapsody, and Light Becomes Liquid).

It's the best album we've done, because it's a compilation of the best tracks from our previous albums. If you already like our music, you'll definitely enjoy this album. But if you didn't, this album might just change your mind!

Harrison's lyrical melodies are the aesthetic heart of Pacific Woods. His decades of playing jazz inform his melodies, but this isn't quite a jazz album. His playing is quieter, more spacious and peaceful than his fans may expect from his jazz concerts on the Mendonoma coast.

Dave's ostinato bass lines provide a pulse and rhythmic texture, but leave room for expressive and rhythmic freedom. Often, one of us will break the groove and the other will follow, leading to unexpected interludes and changes in direction.

Popular Gualala DJ and music impresario Fred Adler, who interviewed the musicians, called the tune Twilight (our most popular tune, streamed more than 10,000 times), "mystically, fascinatingly beautiful."
