Cape Cod Fresh Airs
listened to your selections on MySpace and my favorites are Gaia,
Companion ( because I like this kind of intimate, beguiling, jazzy music)
and Victoria. Gaia and Victoria have a nice way of music unfolding in
time, and especially in Gaia, with some surprising moves. Yes, I can hear
Satie hints in Victoria...

Bravo!
Bravo!
These compositions are all unique and somehow soulfully familiar.
The piano touch is strong and sensitive. liquid and precise at once.
Atlantic Sonata surpirses me in it's complexities of emotion while
Shri Rama and Victoria's Harp are so purely tender. I love this recording.

For years I had considered original piano music a "dead cause" but Canary has thankfully revived my interest as I listened to excerpts from this lovely CD, full of contrast, a symbol of how new music can still be created on a traditional instrument, echoing the past styles of Chopin, Scriabin maybe, a little Menotti and Liszt and "Les cinques" French composers; definitely the American Jazz idiom incorporated in Canary's style adds a great touch with its original rhythms and harmonies. So I thank Canary very much for having resuscitated my interest in contemporary piano compositions that DON'T need to have the strings pulled out from the piano's harp in order to be considered "new music".

Such a delight
You just can't classify Canary or her music. Both surprise you at every turn. Expect the unexpected as the music winds its way from start to finish....I am particularly fond of Costa Brava.

I went through your CD yet again this morning. Lovely music there! I am particularly fond of gaia-noon, sometime after 1am and atlantic sonata. Gaia-noon represents your control of "time" for drama and variety for interest and, yes, I like the special places of counterpoint; certainly not academic, but just wonderfully flowing and clear. Nice jazz in "sometime". I would say that John Zielinski did quite well by you. All in all it's a wonderful CD. Congratulations.



TONIGHT i LISTEN TO YOUR MUSIC ON THE BROADBAND AND IT IS BREAUTIFUL AND u CRIED!very much temembering how much I loved you and I am sure I stil do\

edgy but familar, extremly varied all on one piano
The more I hear Canary's compositions, the more I like them. I want to hear them again, there's always a surprise just around the corner.They please me like old friends. My music tastes run eclectic preferring the edges where styles and genres bump up to each other.Canary fits right in. Here she does it with just one instrument, the piano. Remarkable.
