ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As I recorded these tracks, I was trying to play as little as possible because I wanted to leave room for overdubbing other sounds at home. I was trying to play as little as possible because I was trying to rest my fingers between takes of a very demanding classical piece and I was trying to play as little as possible because Liesel told me I should record a meditation CD.

I was totally happy with this little set of pieces. The ones where I was trying to play as little as possible. There was musical thunder in the classical piece, torrents of notes, but I wasn’t really “in” those notes. It was only when I gave myself the freedom to play less, to even play nothing at all, that the still, small voice began singing within me. Twenty plus years of being a church musician has influenced how I write about music. As often in improvisation, I had the feeling that the music was flowing through me, not from me, but as I listen back to the cuts I feel like, wow, that sounds like me being me. Though I’ve been on over a dozen CD releases, I’ve never released a CD of solo piano music until now.

Enjoy, relax!
