Well-tempered Licks and Grooves for Piano

(October 2010)

News_9790060119729.jpg 24 Preludes and Fugues for piano in Jazz Styles.

A concept inspired by Bach's '48', but realised here in a variety of jazz styles. There are twelve preludes and related fugues in each volume, exploring all existing major and minor keys. It pays homage to many famous pianists (Art Tatum, George Gershwin...) but at the same time the style of the music is fresh and individual, combining skilful contrapuntal writing, wonderful melodic sounds and a cheeky sense of humour. The CD includes sample performances of all the pieces.
