Music: Mike Deak, Lyrics: Janice Jarrett

“Remembering” reflects the thoughts of someone enjoying the passage to nighttime with a longtime love. “We sit and let the silence grow. No need to say a single word. We watch another sunset in its slow, pink to reddish glow…Our nights are like a lovely song, one melody that stays as sweet just as the first night…that it played.” A gentle contemplative love song by Michael Deak, Remembering’s lush chords and flowing graceful melodies inspired relaxed and tender lyrics. (This instrumental clip, starting at the vocal entry, is played by the composer.)

Michael Deak studied vibes with Bobby Hutcherson as a teen and played them professionally until adding the piano after the landmark “Kind of Blue” album in 1959 came out and he heard the inspirational pianist Bill Evans. By the time he won 1st place for vibes in several Lighthouse Jazz Festivals, he was already composing, and eventually won awards for both jazz and classical works. Two of his guitar works, performed by Gregg Nestor and Ray Burley, can be found on Cambria’s “Kaleidoscope” CD. While Jarrett was in California, Mike came to hear her group Borrowed Time, and their lyric and song collaborations began. Currently, there are 8 in varying styles in the Shop, but Mike continues to send new compositions to work on, so more may appear in the future.
