ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
To truly connect with my improvisations -- and to experience the power and nuance of my Yamaha C-3 recorded in audiophile sonics -- please listen at concert levels via headphones or through an excellent playback system. LOUD! Thank you.




Biography:

Born, raised, and still living in Rhode Island, my classical piano lessons began at age 10. My studies afforded many opportunities to practice my craft and pursue performance skills. For example, to help pay for lessons, I played in Providence nightspots and for community theater productions. I performed in middle and high school. And, while a student at the New England Conservatory of Music, I formed and directed my first rock band. After graduation, I returned to Rhode Island, taught general music in a Providence middle school and formed another rock band, Mobius, this time performing my original compositions, infused with all the influences of my musical knowledge -- classical, jazz, rock and pop. At the same time, I began teaching private students and continue to this day. And, after many years of looking to define my musical voice, I returned to my roots.

My Improvisational Method:

Improvisation has traditionally involved playing (or singing) extemporaneously, especially by inventing variations on a melody or creating new melodies in accordance with a set progression of chords. Typically, there is a given song, for example Gershwin's Summertime. After the artist states Summertime's theme, improvisation takes place based entirely upon the inherent key/chord progression as well as the melodic characteristics of Summertime. Occasionally, improvisations are radical in their departure from the inherent thematic/chord structure of a piece, but most improvisations follow the aforementioned procedure of maintaining adherence to the underlying structure and chord progression. My improvisations are extemporaneously performed and recorded and depart from this traditional method.....(continued at http://improvpianist.com/)
