Album Notes
Dan DeChellis is an improvisational pianist with an impeccable list of academic and performance credits. In his improvisational works, including the three pieces on Chamber Music, he plays piano in an almost
of stream-of-consciousness style, flitting between keyboard runs, churning out disjointed dialogues, off-kilter scales and occasional moments of classically-inspired clarity. Sometimes, as on "Deliberate Steps", he'll play in a tentative, exploratory fashion, while on "Conversational Quench" he's at the forefront of the action, assailing his keyboard with an almost brutal energy. It's not always easy to listen to, but DeChellis' improvisations are confident and intuitive; it's easy to follow his playing, even at its most disjointed, because
you know he's going somewhere rather than noodling aimlessly.

Chamber Music is an intriguing series of compositions that will appeal to listeners who enjoy one-on-one
instrumental interaction. When Dan DeChellis pits his short, sharp piano textures against the billowing whine of Hernandez's music, you might even get the same feeling you get from a killer riff at a rock concert
-- that marvelous electric thrill that comes when music transcends its bounds. You can get that from any kind of music, if it's done well. Chamber Music is done very well -- and in this context, there's nothing stuffy or academic about it." - Splendidezine.com, George Zahora

"composed of subtle forms of sonic behavior, minimal environments within a lyricism displaced through time which flows in a slow and elongated way. Here everything seems to be slowed down, their contributions resolved into grooved outlines which are finally dissolved in their own grooves." - Halana, Jesus Guttierrez
