AND THEN IT RAINED, the fifth and newest release by reed master MICHAEL O’NEILL, is a beautiful compilation of original compositions brought to life by some of the best musical talent around.
O’Neill, who is a mainstay on the San Francisco Bay Area jazz scene, is a creative improviser with a warm, robust sound. He has been composing for many years, but this is the first recording featuring his original compositions.
O’Neill’s music has an expressive quality, as if each note were a song lyric that told a story. His compositions have that same quality. O’Neill’s considerable technical prowess helps deliver the strong emotional impressions evoked in this unique musical montage.
