Chris Tarry is internationally recognized for his bass playing and composing, but as his new release, Rest of the Story, proves, he’s an author, too. Tarry has been publishing fiction in Canadian and American literary journals. His smartly titled new CD for Nineteen-Eight Records is a piece of hybrid art that includes 100 pages of his writing. Described on the website as a product “that speaks to a time when album design still mattered”, Rest of the Story is an exercise in the art of the CD from one of jazz’s top band leaders.
