These pieces are a combination of uplifting original ,published jazz solo piano and unpublished contemporary solo piano compositions.
The jazz pieces in this album are mostly in print in a variety of books. The publisher is KJOS. I have about a dozen books with them starting from 1996 with a book titled Shades of Jazz. The first six tracks are from a book titled Images of Jazz. This album contains 30 years of music making influenced by both classical and jazz. One work- the jazz piece Nighttime song, published in the book Shades of Jazz- is derived from Chopins nocturne in Fminor. This is very much a listening album and hopefully will be enjoyed.
