The mention of Wichita inevitably recalls the title of the Pat Metheny/Lyle Mays album As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls. " In this case it is an apt comparison, as Flynn's music shares similar bucolic atmosphere and song-like melodicism. " Mark Sullivan, All About JazzHalfway through his fourth year teaching at Wichita State University, guitarist William Flynn found himself on the road through the plains of Kansas to Florida's Gulf Coast for a month long artist residency in the idyllic panhandle community of Seaside. The isolation of the ocean-front cottage, away from his life and job allowed for a barely imaginable creative focus, diving into a daily composing regimen and added time for reflection. With a band of Kansas City-based musicians - pianist Roger Wilder, bassist Sam Copeland, drummer Brian Steever, and a guest visit from vocalist Emily Merrell - "Seaside" deals an inspired modern jazz sound, revealing melodies and harmonies captured during a particularly rich creative episode in Flynn's career.
