Sound Travels by Jessie Allen Cooper is a selection of music picked from a collection of over one hundred songs written and recorded over the last fourteen years. I sat with Doug Ross, the bass player on this project and we hand-picked our favorites. Some needed to be totally rerecorded and some were close to being complete. My goal was to pick songs that fit together to give the listener a diversified sound experience.

A journey filled with multi-ethnic overtones, combining the talents of musicians that have studied different rhythms, instruments and composition techniques from all over the world. This album has brought about a new level of creative participation for me. For the first time, I personally acted as the recording engineer on most of the performances, including those of my own. Being involved with the timing, and performance of each instrument and musician made the creative process especially rewarding. My personal relationships with the musicians and technical support team was better than ever making the reward even richer then before.

Sound Travels marks the culmination of many of my life's dreams all coming together at the same time. The success I've had in pursuing my dreams and passions has always come from following my heart. One great thing about life is that we all have the possibility ofcreating our own dreams if we keep doing what we love to do. "Sound Travels" breathes of dreams, exotic instruments and sounds from around the world which I hope will be a musical companion as you follow your passions and dreams too!

Happy Travels! -Jessie
