While many artists her age feel compelled to write music oversaturated with complex harmonies and dense arrangements, “Stories from Solitude” proves that Domi developed the maturity and bravery to let this music, characterized by catchy melodies, infectious swing, and joyful ensemble interplay, be enough – and the results speak for themselves.
The record’s title speaks to the inspiration Domi finds from being alone with her thoughts in picturesque natural places. While the trio’s performances of songbook tunes on this date all serve the compositions well, this record shines in large part because of Edson’s development as a composer. She has learned how to take stories and experiences from her life and convert them into songs, weaving tales for her listeners much like she would in conversation.
