Album Notes
"Get ready to look deeply into the soul of Portland pianist Tony Pacini as you listen to his brand-spanking-new solo piano CD.

Here he is, all alone with the total performance resting solidly on his broad shoulders. He is more than equal to the task. The recording was done from start to finish without any technical manipulation like splicing, editing or overdubbing. It’s Pacini pure as fresh snow but much warmer.

He begins with Ellington’s “ Do Nothin’ Til You Hear From Me,” and then slides into a very thoughtful and pretty treatment of “Moonlight in Vermont.” Way before Pacini was born, there was a young man attending Grant High School who went on to world fame as a pianist-composer and vocal coach. Pacini takes one of Phil Moore’s compositions, “Eastside Westside” and displays all the joyfulness written into it.

Ah, but Pacini writes, also. He includes two of his own compositions among the 15 on the disc. The first is titled “Golden Boy” and is a pretty ballad with what could be described as an Ellingtonian influence. The second is “Goodbyes” and fittingly is the last song on the record. It is a somewhat somber piece, but far from morbid.

Pacini includes his luscious interpretations of standards like “If I Loved You,” “Skylark,” “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “Body and Soul,” “Georgia” and others. Two of my favorites are “Emily” and “Come Sunday.”

This is a golden opportunity to become better acquainted with a pianist of depth and talent who honors those who wrote the songs he performs."
