The Jazz in Me

thejazzinme.jpgThese are songs that Player A recorded originally for the record of the same name by Player A founder and keyboardist Eric Copeland. These songs reflect a more vocal side of the group.

First up is the seminal and somewhat autobiographical “The Jazz in Me” which explores Copeland’s reasons and life through jazz. Then we are treated to the vocal version of “My Steps are Ordered”, which features a vocal over the track from “Steppin'” from the group’s release Our Own Devices.

Copeland shares another sliver from his personal life with “In Between Dreams, an island-tinged samba. “When She Returns” is a mysterious ballad that tells the story of a relationship both challenging, and completely wonderful.

Finishing the EP is a unique arrangement and composition of the hymn “Have Thine Own Way” with new verses written before using the hymn for the chorus.
