ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Originally released as a companion recording to the successful "Velvet Piano - Volume One" this album now stands on it's own as a landmark in Jon's performing history.

Recorded live before a sophisticated party audience at the internationally recognized Hotel Riviera in Sidmouth, Devon England, it captures the delightfully sparkling, tinkling style that defined the "Sam's Club" of 'Casablanca' fame. The beautiful Bluthner grand piano (still there today) rings clear and pure above the cocktail chatter of guests and delivers a full and rich tone to complement the quite amazing array of repertoire Jon chose for the occasion.

If you've dreamed of being in the film "The Great Gatsby" where the strains of Broadway melodies, movie themes and pop songs from across the ages wafted across marble floors and through the glint of crystal chandeliers - then this album transports you to just such a place.

From the joyous romps of Fats Waller's "Ain't Misbehavin" and "I Can't Give You Anything But Love - Baby" to the serene Lloyd-Webber classics of "Phantom", "Sunset Boulevard" among others, Jon's inimitable style floats effortlessly across all 88-keys, often prompting listeners to questions such as "...does he really only have two hands?" and "...how does he remember all these tunes"

For those in the know - despite having had NO formal training whatsoever and still being unable to read a note of music - Jon's quite remarkable talent belies belief as his intuitive grasp of his audiences' preferences lead him from one sold-out performance to another.

Enjoy this "Velvet Piano" album, share it with friends, family and we feel sure it will become a classic within your collection.

Lively and skillful performance
The skillful ivory work makes you feel you are right there in the midst of the party, savouring the lively and light-hearted touch this pianist gives to each piece. Truly enjoyable entertainment, rendered in the tradition of lounge piano-playing.
