Liner notes

New Amsterdam Groove (Single) - I wrote this instrumental song while I was living in The Netherlands during the late 1990's. It had occurred to me that I had been given the wonderful opportunity to have been able to play bass guitar in both cities of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and New York City, New York. I played this song live in The Netherlands, but it was the pandemic quarantine of 2020-2021 that gave me time to finally record it. I was joined by some great musicians on this song, and I am grateful for their musical input and recorded performances, they are stellar in all that they did. And as New York City was once named New Amsterdam, I thought that the song's title suited my actual experiences of having lived in both cities and having encountered the pace of each one while living there. - Jerome Lee
