WHAT HAS GONE BEFORE

To younger ears the sounds JDA that paint over dried colors of sound do not matter in their similarity. My son, while listening to JDA's 'Sleepyhead,' was humming away to its catch. He, of course, has never been so exposed to Harry Nillson that he would pick up on the influence. All this being equal, JDA produces and writes some memorable tunes, even if they bring to memory others like them."

THE 2ND ALBUM!

THE CHANGE WILL DO YOU GOOD
 WHO SHE WAS
 TIME WILL TELL
 THE DOOR
 L'AURORE SUIT LA NOCTURNE
 THE TIDE HAS TURNED AWAY
 AND SHE KNOWS
 NO MORE GOODBYES
YOU'RE IN MY HEART
DEAD BOYS
BLUES HAND
HAIL THE CONQUERING HEROES
FOR A MOMENT SHE BELIEVES

With the artistic success of A Fine Time, JDA created a collection of esoteric, yet accessable songs.
JDA returns with THROUGH A MOVING WINDOW, having grown musically, and with a new collection of songs, each unique and special, yet somehow linked to each other.
Fueled by a concept that life is an ever changing panorama, the moving windows of our lives often merge, allowing experiences to coalesce, almost photgraphical in nature.
We love, we laugh, we cry.
Moments remind us of our past, and we honor those who influenced us.
These concepts and more are explored on this new ALBUM of musical images, with a solid musical kick, and a natural progress for this group.
From the anthem of 'The Change Will Do You Good', the haunting 'The Door' or, 'For A Moment She Believes', we are treated to a buffet of musical treats. Sample 'Who SHe Was, The Tide Has Turned Away. or the psychedelic treat 'And She Knows'.
Rockers like 'Time Will Tell' and 'No More Goodbyes' and 'Blues Hand' will please, and epics such as 'Dead Boys' and 'Hail to the Conquering Heroes' will impress! Check out JDA's latest here!
EVOR's Elite Veterans Of Rock Winners!

BACK IN 2000  when we recorded this cd we wrote a tune called WHO SHE WAS, and by a happy accident that is toolog a story to relate here, we also wrote FOR A MOMENT SHE BELIEVES. these 2 songs are very similar musically, and infact sort of book-end the cd, in that the former is the 2nd song and the latter is the  last song.  Here for the first time is a mix of the 2 together...

ONCE AGAIN INTO THE BREACH...
JDA TRIUMPHS AGAIN WITH A NEW COLLECTION OF TUNES TO GROOVE YOU, TUNES TO MOVE YOU, AND TUNES TO STIMULATE YOUR MINDS AND MEMORIES.
A WONDERFUL BREW OF POP SENSIBILITY, ROCK CRUNCH, AND TRUE HONEST EMOTION, LYRICAL AND MELODIC SENSE,
LISTEN TO SYZYGY!

In totality, this album brings to my mind an image that is both stellar
and earthly . . . that angels have descended to Earth and taken up
residence, sacrificing their divinity to fully enjoy all that being human
has to offer.

I like this album . . . so much so that I will give my strongest
recommendation: if you love rock, you must own this album.

THE JDA PROJECT RELEASES FOR THE FIRST TIME UNDER THE NEW MONIKER, THEIR LATEST EFFORT 'DROPSTONES'
 
FULL OF DIVERSITY IN STYLE WITH A FEW SURPRISES.
THE CREATIVE TEAM OF JOEL PIRARD, DON PITZ, AND ARNO TIETJE
return once again to present more great music in what has become an established sound for the band.
 
16 new songs to captivate you! DROPSTONES is sure to build on the already strong tradition that JDA, now THE JDA PROJECT has presented in the past.

We never pigeonhole ourselves stylistically, which may or may not be mistake, but there is nothing contrived when we record and write.
This disk, our 4th, is simply a collection of individual tunes, unrelated to each other, and covering a variety of moods, but in a more generally laid back style, bluesy, melancholy at times, but I think we executed each song well. The hardest part was to select the running order.
I think if you listen to it in the right situation, in subdued lighting, and just let it move over you, you'll get it. especially with headphones....anyway, I hope so."
