A Wiser Man Than Me

A Wiser Man Than Me


Original composition featured on debut album of Owen Broder: The American Roots Project, Heritage

Instrumentation: Violin, Baritone Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, Vibraphone, Piano, Bass, Drums

Among eight other tracks of carefully crafted and beautifully composed ensemble writing, “A Wiser Man Than Me” is of looser construction. It draws from the New Orleans dirge, and allows the group to freely interpret and improvise around a single melody, as in the “lead sheet” tradition of many forms of American music, including jazz. The title is a nod to the collaborative effort of this album, and to the friends and colleagues from whom I often received invaluable advice and council.
