Susan Ottzen Jazz Harp Trio

Jazz trios have been around since the early days of jazz. Yet, here is one that defies the norm. A Jazz Harp Trio! Susan Ottzen conceived of this ensemble and assembled it piece by piece. First, asking Don Erdman to join her with his clarinet and then adding Lyn DeRamus on the upright bass. When Lyn came on board everything fell in place. Recording a CD seemed like the logical next step. So, Susan employed the services of two excellent recording engineers, Bo Gaiason and Bill Porter. They made the work of recording easy and relaxed.

So, here it is. The newly formed “Susan Ottzen Jazz Harp Trio All the songs were selected by Susan. Songs that go back to the days of Duke Ellington and forward to the music of Stevie Wonder and John Williams. Songs that are distinguished by their unforgettable melodies.

We hope this recording brings you as much joy as we three experienced putting it together.

I composed these five original pieces to be an overture or a beginning to Franklin Abbott’s CD release concert at 800 East Studios. I performed these five pieces on the harp, and they were recorded as a live concert CD – my new demo CD called Reverie that is now for sale.

Here’s Duke Ellington’s ‘Take the A-Train’ from the CD:

Your CD is wonderful! Your rhythm is dead on and you are very courageous in both tunes and playing. I really like the way you dig in … very, very creative stuff!
