ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

Unlike the typical New Age piano that saturates the scene, these recordings are nuanced and thoughtful without being overly dramatic. They draw on a wide range of musical ideas from jazz, blues, classical music and even traditional Japanese music.

If you're more interested in Joanna Newsom than Enya, more into John Fahey than George Winston, then this is an album for you!

This collection of instrumental pieces is dedicated to the memory of the woodlands in Upstate New York where she spent her childhood.

It was recorded at home with left essentially unproduced, with the exception of "Judgement Day," which features arrangements for guitar harmonics and harp.

Raised in a musical family, Lindsay Kaplan began writing music on piano at around 7 or 8 years old. She learned to read classical music but very early on discovered an instinct for improvisation and composition.

YOU WAIT FOR THINGS LIKE THIS
There are those all too rare moments in life when you stumble across something truly extraordinary - an undiscovered book of paintings or photographs that transfixes, some minor masterpiece of detritus in a junk store to add to your collection or a film of perfect pitch. This new release of Ms. Kaplan's piano music can be slipped into that scarce yield of wondrous experiences where you feel that everything is well with the world, however small your corner of it.

This recording of piano works is the perfect aural narrative for late nights pouring over a collection of early natural history drawings whilst pouring the bourbon from the bottle into the glass! At times you can almost hear her sketching out these musical concepts, but never does she lose her way. There is a musical intelligence here that escapes most of us and yet informs us all.

I am summoning Guy Maddin-esque scenes in B&W or 18th century watercolor landscapes to my mind's eye as I enjoy this music and allow myself to slip from the dry-dock that is the present locus of reality. To listen to this collection is to be in the room with her as she meanders brilliantly across the keys. Darn good schtuff!
