Notes

From back cover:

Recorded at Rolling Stock Studios & The Bungalow
Thanks to Tim, Selene, Lachlan, Robyn, Mackenzie & Nick.

This album was written and recorded on the land of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. We pay respects to their elders, past and present.

From inner sleeve:

Aptly titled, ‘Welcome’ is the debut album from Don Glori. A kaleidoscopic free dive into his world, featuring 8 recordings of revolving jazz, Brazilian, soul and funk inspired compositions spinning together and blurring into a genre bending slew of new music.

There is an intangible element of joy and connection sitting just outside the grasp of description or definition that can be felt throughout this album.
Each song on this album captures the spirit and irrepressible energy that underpins the core of the Don Glori project. Imperfections are captured along with the moments of transcendence. Layers of vocal harmonies oscillate next to pulsating samba rhythms while spiritual overtones permeate throughout. Congas and percussion form a holy union with the drum kit, co-piloted by Don Glori's own bass lines.
Saxophones, horns and flutes flutter in between the musical canyons carved out by the piano and vibraphone. When you press all of these forces together you can start to feel the intangible; the intrinsic human elements existing in the creases.
The sweat, excitement and willingness of each musician to dedicate their spirit and take risks on every track of this album.

It's clear from the outset that this is an expansive body of work from the spiritual jazz opener ‘Maiden Waters’ to the bubbling street party that is ‘Dlareme’, and ending on the unashamedly seductive ‘Commodore’. This is the kind of record that will translate equally well to both the dance floor and the lounge room rug.

    A truly amazing and super listenable record. The album artwork is gorgeous and the music is even better. Feels like a classic in a way where it's hard to believe how recently it was released.
