“There is a sense of expansion and introspection, as if contemplating simultaneously a myriad of forgotten places, faces and sounds. Like a dream, one's never quite sure where it will lead....Let me suggest your nearest jazz record store.”
Jason West, All About Jazz

Recorded in the autumn of 1998, "Language Arts" offers ten tracks that cover the entire spectrum of Wallace's musical palette. Featuring top-notch musical contributors like Boston drummer Bob Moses and NYC tenor saxophonist Charles Pillow---along with Seattle bassist Chuck Bergeron and trumpeter Jim Knapp---this CD combines some great individual playing with a group effort anchored in beautiful, intelligent composition. That's Wallace's forte, and the result is some heady, heartfelt, spiritual music.

It's a pity Pax Wallace will soon be leaving Seattle to take up residence in Europe. Luckily, the thirty-nine year old pianist/composer leaves us with some wonderful music representing much of his best work over the seventeen years that he has made Seattle his home.

Recorded in the autumn of last year, "Language Arts" offers ten tracks...
