ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is my first collection of solo piano music. It features six brand new compositions, four of my favorite works from previous CDs, and one new collaboration. I’ve written a brief description of each of the pieces so that you may have a better understanding of me and my music. This is my most personal, intimate, and musically rewarding work to date, challenging in both its composition and performance. I’ve tried to achieve a balance of mind, body, and spirit that can communicate to the listener on a different level. I hope you enjoy this music as much as I do, and that it touches you in an important way.
