âIâll Dream Of Youâ liner notes â by Remo Palmier
I have known guitarist Monroe Quinn for some time, and am convinced that he is a musician of integrity and dedication. On this recording he has surrounded himself with excellent musicians. He composed and arranged all of the original jazz compositions as well as arranging two standards, âSecret Loveâ and âEmbraceable Youâ. His original jazz compositions are well constructed harmonically. He has a decided talent for writing a melodic Jazz line that lasts. I was pleased that Monroe used Derek Smith for this session; he is one of my favorite jazz pianists.
A good swinging line in a medium tempo with a strong back beat for 16 bars, changing to four on bass and drums for the final 16 bars. Two fine solos by Monroe followed by two from Derek, swinging all the way. The following chorus is Monroe and Derek trading fours with drummer Rick Visone.
Baker Street Blues
This is another composition by Monroe that I especially favor. It has an excellent minor theme with a well measured two beat feeling. For the solos he uses a traditional 12 bar blues in C monir. All four musicians solo on this for three choruses and go back to the theme and ending. A good feeling throughout.
A Wish Come True
A beautiful ballad written by Monroe which features the guitar throughout. He plays a warm, sensitive solo which goes back to the bridge and coda to a solo cadence in chords by Monroe.
Brand New Day
A good rhythmic Bossa Nova with Monroe and Derek in octave unison for 16 bars. The bridge follows with Monroeâs solo lead. It concludes with the very effective use of double stops of thirds. Excellent solos by Monroe and Derek.
Iâll Dream Of You
The title piece for the album is a lovely jazz waltz. Good solos by Monroe and Derek, followed by a fine bass solo by Mike Carino. I especially like the coda with the melody line imitating the theme.
Monroe is joined by brother Alan on flugelhorn. The song starts with a solo guitar intro and continues with a unison by Monroe ands Alan. Good solos follow by Monroe, Alan and Derek. On the fourth chorus each of the soloists trade fours with drummer Rick Visone who displays a rare talent for musical rhythms on his solos.
On this composition written by Monroe, he features the flute played by Gerry Cappuccio. Monroeâs love of Bach is evident when you hear the fugue lines played by flute and guitar. On completion of the duet and interlude comes into play. It accelerates with the piano and bass into a contemporary unison lead line and puts the jazz solos in motion. Monroe plays a fine solo, with an equally good solo by Gerry. The third chorus consists of the guitar and flute trading fours for 16 bars, followed by 16 bars of trading twos. The next chorus is guitar and flute alone improvising in an interlacing form. The duet continues into an 8 bar interlude which returns to the Back like fugue. Following a recap of the first theme it ends with an excellent cadence.
Features Monroeâs guitar soloing all the way with lots of thought and good feeling. I especially like the solo ending in chords.
Three On Four
A funky blues written by Monroe using the standard 12 bar form. The repeated blues riff is tree beats long consecutively as in waltz meter, thus the title âThree On Fourâ. Monroe, Derek, Mike and Rick all take turns with good solos. I like the half time ending which is described in jazz circles as âLeaving through the back doorâ.
Monroe Quinn has been playing professionally since the age of thirteen. He studied for over ten years with jazz guitar great Remo Palmier. Since then he has performed with such artists as Billy Preston, Micky Dolenz of The Monkees, Peter Noone of Hermanâs Hermits, Neil Innes, Joey Mallond of Badfinger, and Denny Laine from Wings and The Moody Blues.
