Return of the Composer is the fifth recording produced by SaltmanKnowles. It features original compositions and expresses a similar sentiment to the previous release "It's About the Melody." While their music could be considered part of the modern jazz mainstream, it has its unusual and distinctive qualities. The beautiful voice of Lori Williams Chisholm is often used as part of the ensembles and, other than on "Pain Management," she is mostly heard singing wordlessly; her scatting is exquisite. The original songs generally feature haunting and strangely catchy melodies, very original chord changes, and infectious rhythms. There is much to discover on this memorable outing.
