ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The album "Snow Dance" revisits songs previously released on the album titled "Piano In Motion" (songs originally composed and recorded in 2007 and 2008). Every one of the 21 songs in that album was relearned, rearranged, and newly performed into the recordings found here. Recording sessions were between June and December of 2019, and it was actually a lot of fun revisiting the old compositions over a decade later, more experienced with clearer vision, and using modern instruments and techniques. This is the recording series that I wanted to accomplish originally. The song order was arranged to best fit the mood that the songs portray, and the album title reflects both the title track and the essence of the overall album. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did crafting it.

From MainlyPiano
Adam Zampino’s "Snow Dance" is a re-worked (and much-improved!) version of his 2008 release, "Piano in Motion," which combined two previous releases, "In Motion" and "Joy In Motion." I reviewed "Piano in Motion" back in early 2009 and liked a lot of the music, but not so much the sound quality of the digital piano it was recorded with. As the old adage says, the third time was the charm for this album! With a whopping twenty-one original piano solos and a playing time of 80 minutes, "Snow Dance" has a lot to offer in terms of both quality and quantity! There is a lot of variety in the music from lighthearted happy dances to quieter music for relaxation, all played with a very expressive touch on the piano keys. All of the pieces from "Piano in Motion" were relearned, rearranged and newly recorded for this album. Quoting Adam Zampino: “it was actually a lot of fun revisiting the old compositions over a decade later, more experienced with clearer vision, and using modern instruments and techniques. This is the recording series that I wanted to accomplish originally.” The order of the songs is different from "Piano in Motion," as are the playing times. (The original album was seven minutes shorter.) So, even if you have the original versions of any of the earlier albums, "Snow Dance" is quite different.

There are too many pieces to describe them all, but I’ll mention some favorites. The title track is light with a lively rhythm that swirls and dances as it sparkles and casts a chilly spell. “Unfolding Blossom” brings to mind images of a flower transforming from a bud to full-bloom - graceful and mesmerizing. “Longing For Rain” conveys the feeling of a western movie set in the desert where everything is dry and parched. Beautiful yet bittersweet with a sense of yearning, I really like this one! “Distance Between” also expresses feelings of longing, but this time they’re deeply emotional. “Walk In the Country” moves at a relaxed and easy pace that is comfortable and unhurried. “Treading Freedom” might be an exhilarating improvisation that created itself seemingly without conscious effort - I really like this one, too! The carefree spirit of “In Motion” has a catchy rhythm and a slightly bluesy attitude that I love - it makes me smile every time! “Taking It Slowly” is my favorite piece on the album. Its graceful swaying rhythm and poignant melody bring images of a dreamy slow dance where the rest of the world disappears. Love it! “Delicate Glow” has hypnotic rolling chords on the left hand and a gentle, wistful melody that could be describing flickering candlelight or moonlight on fresh snow or the first colors of a sunrise - gorgeous and very soothing. “Soothing Memories” feels relaxed and free. “Sounds of Musique” is built around of several themes and varies from simple with a gentle flow to bigger and more playful.

Hopefully "Snow Dance" is the start of a new chapter in Adam Zampino’s solo piano career!
