ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
While I was traveling through Brazil this year. I felt a deep desire to record a piano solo based on the depths of the Brazilian heartland. From Rio de Janeiro's breathtaking views to MinasGerais countryside mountains with beautiful waterfalls and forests. I brought the power jazz feels from the city of lights New York, into the tropical nature of Brazil. Sit back, relax and dream with natures beaches oceans and sounds.

Soundscapes of Brazil
Love solo piano interpretations of soundscapes with jazz influences. The melodies twist through the overall back drop with twists unlike a country road. Deserves a peaceful listen for those quiet thoughtful moments when you are alone.

Peter Trappen

Awesome!
Thought-provoking and deeply felt... I found 'Brazilian Native Mountains' to be my favorite with images of a running stream dancing over waterfalls and under moss covered logs. I also really love 'Modern Stride' with it's cool rhythm.
