ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For years, decades even, I've been saying "I really want to record this music". i sit down at the piano and allow it to breathe. Sometimes it works, sometimes it works better. The important thing for me is to listen and allow. When I recorded this album one beautiful April morning, after the first track, Ben, my engineer, said "That was quite a conversation." I thought, yeah, that's a really good way to describe it. These are conversations with the piano, complete with the thoughts and emotions, the imaginings that happen during playing. Like many of the verbal conversations that we have with each other, we don't know how they're going to go, not really. They're improvised. And we're all improvising all the time.
This is what is fascinating to me. I wanted to record some of these piano conversations, capture them, like we might a moment in time with a photograph, or sketch, a snippet of conversation.
These three tracks were all recorded on the same day, and the track titles are the times that they were created. There's no overdubbing, just a little clean-up in the mixing and mastering, but none of the notes have been changed or re-recorded, so in that sense, they're completely "live".
I wanted to record somewhere inspiring, somewhere beautiful. Ovingdean is a little village a few miles to the East of Brighton on the South Coast of England. It sits nestled at the foot of ancient hills on one side and the timeless ocean on the other. It was truly an inspiring place to create, which is why this album bears its name. I hope you enjoy it!
