ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
He's 88 on the 88's!

In celebration of his 88th birthday, this self-taught pianist has produced an album of melodies learned and played by ear over seven decades.

It Began as a Prank!

Legend has it that his older sister received a piano for her birthday, but kept it locked so her younger siblings couldn’t play with it; Pat, however, soon discovered that the key to his mother’s sewing machine would also unlock the piano.
“To spite my sister, whenever I found solitary time, I would turn on the radio & play along with the popular sounds of the day. A couple of years later I finally “came out” at this same sister’s 16th birthday party, to the amazement of family and friends alike. . . .the old cliché that goes, ‘They all laughed when I walked over to the piano. . .’ ”

And the Rest is History...

Playing piano in clubs in New York in the 30’s, organizing a theater company in the 40’s and staging musicals and comedies through the 50’s & 60’s, he still loves nothing more than a gathering for a good time with music—all kinds of music. Another cliché:
“If you hum a few bars I can fake it.”

SOLILOQUY,
his first ever recording, arises from decades of gatherings around the piano in the family living room—or wherever the family gathered around a piano. The melodies on this album will take you back to times and places you haven’t thought about in years.
Enjoy
