In 2006 I decided to experiment with a great many recordings of genuine piano improvisations. Played in a small New York City studio, these are true improvs that were not written or planned prior to recording. Each piece was genuinely made up on the spot, and many were tossed out quickly.
Some have been previously released, and the styles vary. I recorded approximately 50 improvisations over 6 months and now, several years later, I am releasing the first part of a two-part collection of these improvs, re-mastered and tweaked to improve the original recording quality.
Enjoy this fleeting piano music! I hope to release Set 2 of many other improvisations sometime during 2013.
released December 31, 2012
