Released 2012
Released 2012
A series of solo piano improvisations remarkable for their beauty, technique, and sense of composition, filled with surprises and complexity and deep emotion.
NOTES
Improvisations was recorded at Lake Union Recording on a Baldwin SD-10 concert grand piano over four sessions in January and February of 2012. While a true definition of improvisation is elusive, for me it means how I play the piano. No sheet music or memorized repertoire, no path provided by another to follow. Just an instrument I have loved and played for as long as I have memories.

In the end I chose to name the final selections. They are no longer ephemeral; each time I listen to them they are the same now, note for note. I chose these pieces because they are evocative to me, emotionally, visually, or they have a story to tell. The names seem to capture the nature of each – a moment, a movement, a place somewhere.
