Tuesday’s Child

A Sonic Exploration of Originality and Tranquility

Coming March 24, 2023 on Dark Delishious Music 

  
ALYSE KORN - Alyse Korn & Robert Kyle : Tuesday’s Child cover

 

TUESDAY’S CHILD comprises nine captivating compositions written and performed by veteran reed player ROBERT KYLE and jazz pianist/vocalist ALYSE KORN. The songs are intimate and lyrical, inspired by their love of Jazz, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban music.

 

Best known for his warm tone and passionate interpretations on tenor & soprano sax, and his melodic and inventive flute work, Kyle is also a composer, arranger and producer. The Los Angeles native has recorded and performed with top names like Linda Hopkins, Natalie Cole, Francisco Aguabella, Guinga, Chico Pinheiro, Seu Jorge, Michael McDonald, Johnny Mathis, Michael Bolton, Linda Ronstadt, Carole King, Lou Rawls, and many more. He has also recorded over a dozen CDs as a leader. L.A. Jazz Scene says, “His years of experience backing influential blues singers have left their mark on Robert Kyle. His phrasing is much like that of a strong singer who can connect with the audience through sheer emotion.” After touring as a drummer with rock and country bands when he was 18, he picked up the saxophone on a whim and quickly fell in love. It became his passion, his voice. And it has taken him all over the world.

 

Born and raised in Miami, Korn blossomed into a pianist/keyboardist, vocalist, composer, arranger, and music educator. She earned a BM in Studio Music and Jazz Performance at the prestigious Frost School of Music at the University of Miami, and an MFA in Jazz Piano Performance from CalArts, where she participated in the World Music Program. Her mentors include David Roitstein, Alan Broadbent, Mark Levine, Alan Pasqua and Russell Ferrante. Korn has performed with jazz, Brazilian and Salsa bands, including Ed Calle, Susie Hansen, Son Mayor, Brazil Brasil: Ana Gazzola and Sonya Santos. She has performed on television and in theatre productions. She and Kyle play frequently with Téka and her band, New Bossa. 

 

Their love of Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, and American jazz brought Kyle and Korn together. They first met at California Brazil Camp where they both continue to study Brazilian music with the masters.

 

Kyle says “I’ve made several albums paired with just a guitar or piano, but this one is special because this one is with Alyse, and Tuesday’s Child is our child.”

 

The songs on TUESDAY’S CHILD feature Kyle and Korn, and they decided to invite some friends: KEVIN WINARD on drums and percussion, HUSSAIN JIFFRY and AHMET TURKMENOGLU on bass, and LEONICE SHINNEMAN on tabla. Their talent and creativity enriched the music.

 

The music on TUESDAY’S CHILD is warm and inviting. As Korn says, “There’s a lot of turmoil in the world today, and we hope that when people listen to our music, they will feel the peace that we feel when we play it.”  

 

The album opens with Korn’s tune “Gratitude.” The composition features ethereal vocals by Korn, who wrote it while at the Krishnamurti Retreat in Ojai, California. The music reflects the atmosphere of the retreat, where people connect with nature. “What If,” composed by Kyle, has a Brazilian vibe. It features Kyle on flute playing the melody and improvising along with Korn’s soulful piano playing and vocalese.

 

“Your Light” is a romantic ballad that Kyle wrote to capture the grace, kindness, and passion he finds in his partnership with Korn. The song features Kyle’s tender tenor saxophone. Korn wrote “Distance Between Us” after she left her family on the East Coast and came out west. “Tuesday’s Child” is another tune Kyle wrote for Korn. The name refers to the fact that they were both born on a Tuesday. Coming from Florida and spending some time in the colder California mountains, winter was a new experience for Korn, who composed “Winter,” a dark and moody piece.

 

Kyle wrote “Blue Jack” for his favorite uncle. The tune came to him as he was driving down the highway and had to pull over to hum the melody into his phone. Turkmenoglu’s bass adds a rich sound and deep swing to this bluesy tune. Uncle Jack’s kids are featured on finger snaps. Kyle dedicates “Vivian’s Danzón” to his youngest sister. Written in the Cuban Danzón style, the song features hard-grooving Jiffry on baby bass, which is often used in Afro-Cuban music. Korn sounds right at home in this style, which she grew up hearing in Miami.

 

The last song features Shinneman on tabla. Composed by Kyle, the song is named for an acquaintance from a Yoga class. One morning, Ruby told Kyle that she dreamt she had given him her 1926 Knabe grand piano that was abandoned in a warehouse. She gifted him the beautiful piano, and the first song that he wrote on it, “Ruby’s Dream,” closes the album.

 

The music on TUESDAY’S CHILD is eloquent and subtle. Its polyrhythms and elegant harmonies draw you in gently to its wistful melodies. Robert Kyle has a distinguished recording career, and TUESDAY’S CHILD is a stellar addition to his roster of captivating albums. Alyse Korn is an experienced pianist who possesses a warm, buttery voice. TUESDAY’S CHILD should give audiences the opportunity to hear her sensitive piano accompaniments and improvisations. Together, they have created an inviting collection of compelling compositions.
