ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Butter Avenue is the perfect follow-up to O’Bergh’s earlier solo piano album, Winter Moods. This rich blend of jazz, impressionism, and neo-modern piano evokes spring’s vibrant tapestry of color. Reflecting both urban and pastoral scenes, the rhythms of life come alive in the album’s 12 tracks.

The spirit of Vince Guaraldi can be heard in the jaunty opening track, “Centre Island,” as well as in “The Music Garden.” A softer mood prevails in the lilting “Butter Avenue” and pastel-inflected “Sunday in High Park.” With stirring power, “Fleur-de-lys” evokes spring’s vitality. Stormy chords and a steamy beat propel “Stormclouds.”

“Water Lilies” conjures Monet with an impressionistic, seductively simple waltz, while multiple piano lines weave through “Starry Night Over the Rhône,” an ode to Van Gogh’s painting that pulsates with dark and light. You can almost feel the rocking of passing trains in the bluesy “Portland Street Bridge,” named for the overpass above Toronto’s rail lines. Mystical, bell-like tones and drones swirl in “Snowmelt.” A gently meandering melody and echoes of “Sakura” infuse the Satie-esque “Cherry Blossom.” “Waterfall” builds to a stately climax with a cascade of sound that closes the album.
