Going the Extra “Miles” with the Rose Ann Dimalanta Trio

As we roll into another Spring weekend, I’m faced with a bit of a gloomy morning. It’s that type of rainy morning where the light sprinkles are far less oppressive than the looming clouds – that type of rainy morning where you aren’t really motivated to do anything more than sit and write, with a cup of joe at your side. Besides, the weekend is beckoning and we’re all just killing time until is gets here. The sun is peaking out as the rain tapers, but it’s still the gloom is still not quite done hanging over my head.

Those who read this site probably know that I like a nice upbeat tune on a Monday morning because it gets me up and moving. However, on a day like this, something makes me yearn for a track that’s more contemplative. Positivity is key, but not necessarily in the form of a toe tapper or high energy romp. Instead, this morning, I’ve turned to Rose Ann Dimalanta and the latestest single from her band, “Miles”.

Off of the Rose Ann Dimalanta Trio’s latest album, It’s Time, “Miles” is the type of cool, calm, and contemplative song that hits the sweet spot on this gloomy Friday morning. A song of introspection and a look at what can be gained from one’s failures, “Miles” is a beautiful and deep journey that makes the clouds in our days have some extra meaning.

Check out this track on Spotify (above) or grab the album on your preferred music provider. If you’re like me, it may be the perfect song to get you to the weekend.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here, at Cinapse, and at Rock on Philly... as well as on occasion at Cinepunx. He previously wrote for several other sites, but he forgets some of them and others no longer exist. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
