This week we return to a sound and an instrument with endless appeal -- the personal, contemplative piano. In fact this program was going to be compilation for Hearts of Space records. I worked on it with my friend and co-producer AL EVERS in 2004. For various reasons, the album was never released, but I kept coming back to it for personal listening because I loved the selection and the sequence.
There are some absolutely wonderful players here including VICTOR SPIEGEL, RITCHIE BEIRACH, BENJAMIN DOWLING, ADRIENNE TORF, MYCHAEL DANNA and more -- the kind that make you realize the difference between good, and great. This week it just sounded right, and we decided to share it with you as a program.
