Album Notes
This recording features Joel playing his own compostions. It is in a fusion of Jazz, Blues and Classical music that is Joel's unique style! Pizabeth Rides is a modern rag in rondo form. "Til The Morning Comes ( Bluews Impromptu) is a solo Jazz piece that incorporates two forms of music, The Blues and The Sonata Form. It can be purchased seperately in sheet music, as played on this recording, directly from Joel . ( Blue Invention is in the Baroque invention form ala Bach. Matthew Parrish Joins Joel on the Double Bass for this song. Joel then plays the well known Giuliani sonata for solo guitar exacly as he wrote it in the 1700's!
