ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Coaches, new-age healers, and all sorts of other people with some practical wisdom commonly stress the importance of setting goals. Concrete, specific goals are a huge help in moving forward in life, and accomplishing a few things during your time on earth.

Yes, yes, I replied, and never could think of any!

I'd like to learn to whine a little less, I thought, so that maybe someday when, for example, I'm suffering with whatever will ultimately kill me, it will be tolerable for others to come around once in a while and keep me company.

That was all I could come up with, for the longest time.

So the year was 2001 when I opened Book 1 of the Well-Tempered Clavier, sat down with my little multi-track unit, and began recording. And there, at last, I discovered a concrete goal: before I'm off this planet, I will record both books complete.

And, thirteen years and 96 incredible journeys later, here I am.

Book 1 I finished some years ago and released at CD Baby in 2011 under the title "A Different Temperament". I have titled my interpretations of and improvisations on Book 2 "In Bach's Embrace", and truly he has nurtured me like a father, a teacher, a big brother, and a master of all the complexity in the universe: a god, as it were. It's a cozy place to while away the hours, days, weeks...

I am deeply moved as I write this, at the end of one of the biggest processes I've experienced in my creative life, with several fresh goals materializing in my mind, and I hope this new reading of his masterpieces will find friends, and give pleasure, and inspire others perhaps to get to know him better, and to dare, in all respect and reverence, to do just whatever they want with the stuff. It's very strong, and very flexible. It will stand up to whatever you throw at it.

Bless the man, I'm so grateful.
