Low Down

This soundtrack is not only an aural companion to Low Down-the acclaimed biopic of jazz pianist Joe Albany, based on the memoirs of his daughter Amy-Jo Albany-but also the perfect primer for Albanys lifework. Comprised of Albanys own compositions alongside those of Coleman Hawkins, Max Roach, Thelonious Monk, and selections from Ohad Talmors score, this album conjures both a feel for Albanys own avant-garde, quick-tempo, bebop jazz and a mood that evokes the life of Hollywood's notorious jazz hustler. The album meets with the deep approval of Flea, who took the role of executive producer and co-star of the film. "This is the music that makes me think that human beings arent so bad," writes the bassist in the liner notes. "This is the sound that gives me the energy to go out into the world and try to shine a light. As a child, this is the music I listened to that blew my mind; it let me know that all things were possible. If human beings were capable of doing this, then anything could happen."
