Notes

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 Albany’s lifework. Comprised of Albany’s own compositions alongside those of Coleman Hawkins, Max Roach, Thelonious Monk, and selections from Ohad Talmor’s score, this album conjures both a feel for Albany’s 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 aren’t 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.”

“This soundtrack is a beautiful homage to Joe Albany’s extraordinary talent and life,” says Amy-Jo Albany. “It takes me back in time and breaks my heart. It reminds me why music is as essential as air. And if my dad’s spirit is still out there dancing in the high blue, I know he is–as he used to say–’digging it the most.’”
