The Steve Deutsch Ensemble
Going Somewhere Fast
Going Somewhere Fast, recorded by The Steve Deutsch Ensemble, took two years to complete and is the culmination of a lifelong dream. I wrote almost all of the music, and did all the artwork, photography, and layout for the CD and jacket sleeve. I was also very lucky that Omar Sosa, the Cuban piano virtuoso, walked into my life for a while and left an indelible mark on the music.
The influences of Eric Dolphy, Duke Ellington, Hermeto Pascaol, Milton Nascimento, Ali Akbar Khan and Wayne Shorter can be heard in this music and will be heard on my next CD as well. I have found the rhythms of Brazil, Cuba and India to be intoxicating and my compositions continue today to reflect this.
