I’ve been listening to some lovely new music from Brique a Braq (you can find more tracks on my playlists on Spotify). In particular, I’m enjoying the new monthly single releases. So far there have been three. Take a listen, and keep a look out for the next release in February!
I’m really pleased to get a detailed review of The Journey We All Make from Kathy Parsons, on her excellent piano related site – Mainly Piano.
If you’ve also enjoyed the album, I would leave to hear your feedback and comments.
Reflections is the third single release from The Journey We All Make, by Roger Evernden.
2018 looks like being an exciting year, with three new piano albums in production! They are all projects I’ve been working on for some time, and rather unexpectedly it looks like they will all be ready soon.
The first is going to be called The Innocence of Spring – it’s a set of piano pieces that were inspired by the poems of Steve Ellis – in his Spring Collection.
Watch out for more details later in the year.
This track has been really popular recently on Spotify – thank you to everyone who has been listening!
I’ve been asked why the new album is called Improvation.
The quick answer is that I was typing improvisation and misspelt it.
But then I thought that “improvation” covered the way that I composed and played the tracks on the album. Some of the tracks are compositions, while some evolved out of improvisations. And in both cases, the recording is a one-off performance, because there are elements of improvisation in all of the performances. On the other hand, it’s not full-blown improvisation in the sense that a jazz musician would have an extended improvised section in a piece.
So! Improvation it is.
