ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alpenglow depicts the many moods and impressions of winter in Alaska. The extraordinarily gifted pianist and composer Kevin Barnett captures them all from the wistful melancholy of a cozy fireplace to the perfect grace of falling snow.
Exploring all styles from jazz to classical, Alpenglow is the perfect instrumental companion for long winter nights no matter where you find yourself.

Tone poems were first created by Franz Liszt in the 1850s. They are musical “illustrations” of scenes and stories. In the 20th Century, composers like Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, George Gershwin, and Duke Ellington wrote and performed these beautiful and evocative “sound paintings.” Alpenglow depicts the many moods and impressions of winter in Alaska.

Alpenglow ~ Even in winter, the rose of the setting sun warms the heart.
Highland Mountain ~ The mountain in front of you is the beginning of awe.
Termination Dust ~ The scattering of snow in the mountains foretells warm fireplaces and cozy blankets.
Fresh Snow ~ Snowflakes spin and fall into pure, still shapes.
Hot Chocolate ~ Wisps of fragrant, sweet steam comforts the soul.
Snow Angels at Solstice ~ The fragile traces of children’s joy.
Dancing Huskies ~ Flying, leaping dogs are propelled by love.
Death by Icicle ~ The drop of water stalls, crawls, and falls into eternity.
Permafrost ~ The rock-hard soil lies beneath our feet; what mystery is below that?
Snowy Owl ~ The white owl leans towards the light, casting a shadow like silent wings.
Lead Dog ~ Eager to show the way and quick to dance, the dog leads the race.
Cabin Fever ~ The cold and dark bar the door; spring is just ahead.
Primavera ~ The heart beats faster when the flowers bloom.

Kevin Barnett has over 40 years of experience, including 21 years in Air Force bands, as a professional pianist and keyboard player. He is also an experienced and in-demand composer, arranger, and producer working in a variety of musical genres from classical to rock to jazz. Kevin is the owner of Lovin’Dog Music, a recording studio in Eagle River, Alaska, where he lives with his wife, Regina, and their dog, Kaya.

Pianist Kevin Barnett explores tone poems in Alpenglow. This is a collection of jazz and pop vignettes that portray the varied experiences of winter in Alaska, recalling a wide range of influences from J.S. Bach to Chick Corea. To aid him in this endeavor, Kevin has enlisted the aid of veteran session and jazz musicians, like bassists Dirk Westfall and Ray Booker and percussionists Scott D. Weller and Bob Arms. These are musicians who love to be part of a musical conversation, sharing ideas, trading lines, and playing with the spaces between the notes. In creating this beautiful and challenging music, everyone was committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible and dedicated to creating music of great
beauty and subtle power. Wth Alpenglow, they succeeded.
