Introducing "Except For Grace" A Piano Instrumental Album
Floyd Cramer, Anthony Burger
I began playing the piano during my teenage years at church .During college years, I sang tenor and played for Gospel Quartets, church and other groups. I have recorded albums both vocal(Tenor) and as a musician with other groups, during the early 70's, but this is my first piano instrumental. I grew up listening to mostly Gospel, Country and Bluegrass music, but enjoy a variety of other genres.
I have always been known for piano playing, even when I was in Vietnam in the field, we found a little pump organ;so I played for our chapel(devotion service) in the field. They flew it out on a helicopter. Music has followed me everywhere!!!
I am retired,currently pianist at the South Pittsburg Church of God, South Pittsburg, Tennessee. I also play for several club organizations and events. I usually can hear a song once and play it, I have always played what I feel.
Today's Church music has gone through a lot of change, but Traditional hymns are timeless favorites of many. The songs I chose for this album are still fresh today.I am proud of this project and think it will make a nice addition to renewing interest in traditional and contemporary Hymns. I would like to get this album to as many Gospel Music fans as possible.
