Panama Piano was released on July 10, 2020.
Recorded at the Peace Palace, Sedona, AZ on a Steinway B in the first two weeks of May 2020.
This album was the result of a two week road trip through the country of Panama. It was totally magical. It was inspiring and joyous. Hopefully you will hear it in the music. I approached this album in a similar way to Southwest Solo Piano, with one major difference. For Southwest Solo Piano, I would think about each of the places that we visited, and then improvise music based on those thoughts and feelings. With Panama Piano, I started with an improvisation after considering places and experiences, but instead of recording the improvisations, I would compose the pieces using the ideas and melodies that came up during the improvisation. For more information and photos about my Panama experience and the making of the music on this album, check out the blog entry on this site.
