From many years of working on the "front line" of commercial piano-playing, Jim Gibson has learned that what makes a song, and a performance, memorable is . . . the melody. That's what people hum, sing, and whistle--it's the hook the stays in the memory.
That's why Jim's solo piano collections emphasize melodic favorites. Even though all his Hickory Cove recordings are improvised, they are quiet and relaxing--and don't ever leave the melody too far behind. You'll hear moments of jazz, echoes of classical songs, and the simplicity of new-age playing--all blended masterfully.
People around the world enjoy Jim's recordings, buy multiple copies for gifts, and collect all his recordings--for the simple reason that his blend of styles in relaxing and unusual--and you don't tire of listening to these great songs and Jim's sensitive improvisations.
