ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the 70s there was a common caricature of the lounge piano player, someone who told bad jokes behind a piano to an indifferent crowd. Those who subscribed to popular cynicism reduced the performer to a cliche in a cheap tuxedo. However, those who had the wisdom to appreciate the vast yet discriminating repertoire of the entertainer were rewarded with hours of wonderfully played songs. Hearing the personality given to old standards and revamped contemporary tunes offered a welcomed escape from the canned music of Muzak. The one-man show that can go 3 hours holding an audience is a talent developed by seasoned performers. Those performers continually read their audience in order to pleasantly engage their attention. Meller is one of those performers who has perfected his craft, connecting to his audience by using familiar melodies, giving unsolicited joy to those around him. His unique style of playing developed from over 30 years of playing New York City's piano lounges and supper clubs. I could listen to him all day.

Fred Meller, piano man extraordinaire, has given lovers of jazz and American standards a treasure in his newly released collection of songs.   Each piece is uniquely and beautifully  executed with great emotion and heart. So give yourself the gift of "Nobody Else But Me" and this mega talented pianist will entertain you over and over again.

Like having a professional pianist as my guest....
Light the candles, dim the lights and push play..... Nobody Else But Me feels like having our own pianist as a guest without having to squeeze the Grande Piano into our tiny NYC apartment!

I highly recommend this CD for an evening of sophisticated entertainment. It's an eclectic mixture of memories that flow throughout the night. Light the candles, dim the lights and push play.... you are ready to enjoy the evening.

It's the perfect hostess gift!

Melt your stress
After a stressful day at work, I like to come home and put on Fred Meller's "Nobody Else But Me' while I prepare food. It relaxes me and takes me to better times and it is perfect to accompany our dinner. What a pleasure that is... I love the CD, just wonderful, beautiful piano music! Great!
