Album Notes
Ned Goold (Harry Connick's side-man for over a decade and now musical director) joins Richard along with percussionist Valtinho Anastacio (McCoy Tyner's choice on two of his grammy award winning recordings), and guitarist Ben Sher to create a rare ensemble, captivating, musical, inventive and cohesive.
Within a few months of it's release in the fall of 2004 Ghost climbed through the playlists into prominent positions on national charts in both jazz and rock categories,alongside releases by Blue Note , Concord etc.. As with his earlier works, Walk the Bike and Compose Yourself , Ghost has been praised in reviews from critical papers like Cadence Magazine ,The Big Takeover, Shredding Paper , MusicDish , and All About Jazz.

Composer/pianist/singer Richard Bliwas sets out on his most ambitious recording yet with Ghost. Bliwas offers listeners an intoxicating mix of free jazz, funk, Latin, pop and straightahead jazz. .His writing, unmistakably original, shares similarities with that of, Miles Davis, Patricia Barber and The Beatles. ---- Truly inspired music., alluring and intricate... fearless mixing of genres, perceptive lyrics, something new with each spin.
~ All About Jazz

Striking sense of organization...great feel for texture....pleasingly messy ...ingenious keyboards...Beatles' influence ... Sun-Ra-esque instrumentals
Cadence Magazine

A cool, mellow blend of Van Dyke Parks, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson and other sixties influences, but with some nice jazz piano liberally added., nothing dates this exquisite music. Timeless. - eloquent and softly haunting. somber and reflective, nothing superfluous. The entire CD sounds like a suite of connected pieces; great laid back, bluesy, jazzy tunes.
Downtown Music Gallery

Strange soulful vocal stories...haunting melodies...piano virtuoso
Hit Session

Ghost is a truly original recording -the performances are passionate, the material has depth, beauty and resonance, and the production is intimate and honest -complex yet accessible. We hope you enjoy it.
