With so many of my albums, there is a story. This is not one of those. All we have here is a failure to have a manuscript.
Gospel and Gotcha
Well, naturally I could tell you stories about each of these pieces. But I think the piano improvisations tell the story better than any words I could come up with.
Yes, that’s why there’s no manuscript. These piano pieces are spontaneous. Each one is an unedited in terms of the keys played the the timing of those touches.
Improvisation is proof that you don’t always need a manuscript. I hope these also demonstrate that improv is high art.
Perhaps for you, it’s about pictures or colors: do you see an image or shifting palettes when you hear music? Or do you see the manuscript in front of you?
The Fundamental Manuscript
Let the sounds of the piano take you where you need or want to go right now. And thank you for listening to “No Manuscript”.
