The problem often with solo piano works is…. Well the word ‘solo’. The piano is a wonderful instrument, I wish I had learned to play it, alas the only keyboard I can play is one attached to a computer. I often feel that great though a solo piano work might be, the addition of another instrument  might elevate the work to new heights

It is like eating a fine roast beef and gravy dinner and introducing a Yorkshire Pudding. The experience is transformative. .

Gary Schmidt with Even For A Moment is the chef that understands the need for the Yorkshire Puddings.

Track one is the starter, If This Is The Time, it is a wonderful track. It draws you in, there are two opposing forces at work. I wish I could talk about it more eloquently, there are two people playing. One is ready and steady, the chord structure is wonderful. Meanwhile someone else is adding a another lighter layer.

Please join us, for what I am sure will be an interesting discussion, and we will be playing some tracks from the yet to be released albu
