Product Notes

Here is a collection of tunes designed to spin acoustically, with low production and executed in real-time. I have my own recording studio and along with this comes the possibility of creating multi-layered music sounding a bit larger than life. I love this setup but for a change I felt inspired to make a recording of music that captures the way we sound when we play live. I've enlisted my favorite players and we brought our long list of experiences both musical and humanistic into the studio. In the span of two days we documented this experience into the digital realm. And now, Taking It All In is complete and it joins the family of jazz CD's that I've created over the years. The early recordings (Dance Of The Universe, The Path, Bird Raga, Message Sent On The Wind, Musica Del Mar, and Na Pali Coast) set the stage and mapped out the roots, and now Taking It All In sheds the light of the new millennium onto my view of an acoustic jazz quartet digging into some improvisation. I hope it sounds good to you... Peter Sprague, August 2005 The musicians on the CD are: Peter Sprague - guitar Tripp Sprague - saxophone and flute Bob Magnusson - bass Duncan Moore - drums All songs are composed by Peter Sprague except Travels by Pat Metheny. 'Peter Sprague is a jazz guitarist with mind-blowing instincts and a heart breakingly deft touch' Jazz Times Best Local Musician - San Diego Reader's Best of 1988 Musician's Choice - San Diego Entertainer Magazine's Best of 1988 Best Pop Jazz Group (Blurring the Edges) - San Diego Music Awards 1994 Best Jazz Artist - San Diego Reader's Best of 2000 Best Mainstream Jazz Artist - San Diego Music Awards 2000 Best Jazz Musician of the Year - San Diego Reader's Best of 2002 Best Jazz Artist - San Diego Reader's Best of 2003 Best Jazz Artist - San Diego Music Awards 2004 He has performed with Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, David Benoit, Charlie Haden, Sergio Mendes, and many others. Sprague has recorded sixteen albums under his own name and has lent his talents to over 120 other recordings, including the recent 'On The Road Again' on the SBE Record label. Peter also is involved with producing many other artists. He runs a recording studio called SpragueLand and this is where you'll find him leading the role of producer, engineer, guitar player, and arranger. In May, 2002 Peter composed and recorded the soundscore for a KPBS-TV documentary on artist James Hubbell entitled 'Eye of the Beholder.' It has been produced into a DVD. In May 2002, Peter composed a twenty minute guitar concerto and performed it with the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. This was a big deal!
