Album Notes
A native of Nashua, New Hampshire, Mike Markaverich was a premature baby whose experience in the incubator resulted in his blindness. Mike began playing a toy piano at age three and took lessons at Perkins School for the Blind where he attended grammar school. He graduated second in his class from Bishop Guertin High School and studied at Dartmouth College where he became interested in jazz and decided to make music his career. After attaining a graduate degree at the University of New Hampshire, Mike began his professional career on Cape Cod where he worked as a solo performer and in various combo settings in major area nightspots for over ten years. In November 1988 he moved to Sarasota where he has been a regular member of the local jazz scene. Mike has also appeared in concert in various venues, appeared on television and radio, given workshops in schools and colleges, teaches jazz piano, and has produced eight of his own recordings.

This particular recording was done all in one session, hence the name "One Shot". It was a great day. Mike was in rare form; the piano was fast; and everything just clicked. We ended up with 15 takes, 13 of them were usable. This album is probably the best solo playing he has done to date. He just keeps getting better and better.

Great Solo Piano
This album has a wide selection of styles and great solo piano work. Mike uses all the keys and all his fingers to create a sound that has fullness and depth.
