There are some things in life, that you can only express through music... and the past little while is a perfect example of that. Life's a trip, take care and thanks for listening.

This is very good indeed, I'm not sure what else to say about it. The overall Eastern ambience, together with the cellular transitions, sliding from the serene to the frenetic and back again, a surprise at every corner, really do remind me of a trip, perhaps in a bus, through alternating bustling and bucolic regions of an Eastern land.

While video is inessential, yours does reveal a physically controlled approach, something I might do well to cultivate myself. Also, you do seem to actively think through both hands; many improvisers do not or cannot. What a beautiful grain in the piano wood, what is it ?

I listened to the entire journey with great pleasure. I could see you sitting down on a stage before a large audience just letting it flow.

That's my dream... however right now I'm a meat wrapper out in the country and I wouldn't even know how to get into "the business". I have no connections unfortunately... we'll see what life brings. Thanks for listening Smiley

And thank you Ted! the wood is Moroccan Thuya burl... very rare wood and this piano (1935) is from the Queen Elizabeth passenger liner. She (Clara) has had one owner before me and was purchased during war time in 1940. A neat fact is that Myra Hess has played this piano on multiple occasions. It's a treasure! I'll be uploading some new music shortly with a better look at the grain I hope..
