ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Improvisations was recorded at Lake Union Recording on a Baldwin SD-10 concert grand piano over four sessions in January and February of 2012. While a true definition of improvisation is elusive, for me it means how I play the piano. No sheet music or memorized repertoire, no path provided by another to follow. Just an instrument I have loved and played for as long as I have memories.

In the end I chose to name the final selections. They are no longer ephemeral; each time I listen to them they are the same now, note for note. I chose these pieces because they are evocative to me, emotionally, visually, or they have a story to tell. The names seem to capture the nature of each – a moment, a movement, a place somewhere.

Chris Ferris - Improvisations
This CD is a rare find. Recommended by a friend and so glad they did. Sonically I have rarely heard a piano sound so 'present' and rich, contributing to the graceful and emotive improvisations of each track. I'm not normally a piano person but the richness and depth of the music on this collection keeps me returning to immerse in the soundscape it creates. Highly recommended to all but anyone looking for explorations to intrigue and entice should check this out. Looking forward to more!
