Closing the Distance-A Studio Performance
The most powerful way to experience music is live. There's a reason for that, and this CD captures that essence. The music was digitally recorded in a studio filled with a live audience of family and friends. The technical magnificence of a 9-foot Steinway, the hushed studio, and the warmth of dozens of candles on a cold winter night created a magical synergy.... The evening was palpably, viscerally exciting - and ultimately inspired me to release this work. I created the performance to span the breadth of our human, emotional palette. I have been told that the variety of musical styles I used "works," thanks to the energetic give and take made possible with a live audience. That was my intention: to close the distance between my experience and yours, with music as the bridge. If you are touched by what I play, that is a gift for both of us.
