John Salmon truly is "a jumpin" in this delightful recording of his music.

In the notes to this recording John Salmon observes that he has always been a classical and jazz pianist and that his professional life has mirrored his youthful inclinations with recitals of music from the classical canon around the globe and appearances with the jazz-faculty combo at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. This is the first recording of his own piano compositions, which are unmistakably in the jazz idiom, probably even more precisely categorized as "third stream," the style that combines jazz and classical languages. The composer/pianist says, "Salmon Is a Jumpin' would have been grammatically incorrect if referring to the fish. But as an autobiographical statement it is correct, especially when I get in a B-flat blues swinging mood."

Review:
"Poached salmon, roasted salmon, salmon cakes, salmon Wellington, whatever your taste, it's all on the menu and served up nicely on this new Albany release. ...this recording providing enough evidence to establish [John Salmon's] reputation as a strong and imaginative writer..." (Classical Music Sentinel)

"Salmon is at home in the jazz and classical worlds, and that shows in these works. They are fundamentally jazz pieces, but they are infused with classical music of the past and the present, and Salmon's technique is certainly up to the task of performing these often demanding works with verve." (American Record Guide)
