ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Greg composed this compilation of songs over the summer and fall of 2001. The sun was hot and the air thick with moisture as he sat at the piano. Out of those sessions came Fire Drake, a fiery, fast song full of joy at the summer weather and thunderstorms, and Avoi Dance, written for his wife Linda as she lounged in a hammock basking in the sun, thereby avoiding all the weeds in the garden. On the more tender side came songs such as I'll Remember You and Always. The piece Castle of Wonders is a song rich in visual textures. It travels through time, bringing the ruins of a castle to life with ladies dancing, torches blazing and knights riding out through the gates, their pennants snapping in the wind, before returning to the crumbling towers of the present.

Some songs on this CD are available in sheet music format as a pdf download. If you are interested in playing this music, go to the website www.gregmaroney.com for further details.

A really great album!
“Sentinel” is Greg Maroney’s third solo piano album to date, and what a beauty it is! The songs tell wordless stories about Greg’s life, its events and surroundings, and the people in it. Warmly inviting, and always accessible, it is the kind of album that I dearly love - one where the music is complex enough that one can hear something new each time, and where the familiar strains grow closer to the heart with each listen. Trained in classical and jazz piano since the age of five, it sounds to me like Maroney is probably most “at home” sitting at the piano and letting musical magic happen. There are jazz elements in Maroney’s music, but I would say that the influences on this CD are of a more classical nature with some of the freedom found in jazz. All of the tracks on this CD are really good, but I have a few favorites. I love “Castle of Wonders” with its swirling, mysterious opening bars, and then dancing rhythms and melody - there is always a sense of mystery, but also of joyful discovery. “Fire Drake” is another upbeat piece full of a dancing sense of elation and wonderful pianistics. Both of these pieces sound like great fun to play as well as to listen to! Most of the rest of the thirteen pieces are a bit slower and more subdued, describing a wide range of emotions and subjects. “Avalon” is a darkly gorgeous piece with lots of deep bass chords and mysterious drama. “Always” is more of a tender love song full of passion as well as gentleness. “Sentinel” is a really great album, and I highly recommend it.

Greg's music is awesome.
Greg plays with great intensity and passion. You can tell by his music that he really loves to play. Each song has a personal flare and story that makes the music so nice to listen too. The music is great for all ages. I like to let my children listen to it while they are sleeping. It may spark their creative side.

Just attended a Live performance, Greg's music is enchanting.
Listening to Greg's music is like entering a dream state where colors come alive and your imagination dances with joy. It can wake you up or lull you into a trance. Greg Maroney is an immensely talented musician and composer whose music evokes emotion from within, while soothing the soul.

Greg Maroney’s “Sentinel” is a unique and moving album. The third track “I’ll Remember You” really interests me because of its beautiful sweet melody combined with a very interesting left hand counterpoint harmony which features Maroney’s virtuosic abilities. I am moved each time I hear “Always” because its melody reminds me of a soaring bird diving up and down, free, powerful and true… like a love that lasts a liftetime… always. “Fire Drake” is most energetic and exudes a wonderful triumphant spirit. I imagine sprites dancing wildly around a bonfire after a successful day harvesting berries in the forest. “Communion” is a piece that seems perfect for a spiritual procession. A walk along a beautiful path taking in and communing with nature in every step. “Birds on a Wire” absolutely charms me; listen and you will hear the birds talking with each other. And then they break into a sweet and melodious song. Maroney does SING through his instrument. My favorite track is the last one the album, “Giants Dance”. This sweet waltz would win over any giant with half a heart and inspire him to spin and twirl. Greg has created another unique and moving album with “Sentinel”, a treasure that will endure.

...mystery...carefree...heated passion
From the mystery of Castle of Wonders, to the carefree attitude of Avoi Dance, I enjoyed each song's creative images. Put Fire Drake on the repeat mode and feel the heated passion!
