Listen to solo piano by Christine Brown on her 12th album Ascend just released today. There is a nice review of the new album by Kathy Parsons at MainlyPiano.com. Christine describes the background of her album like this:
I love painting a picture with sound, using the piano to express emotions and create musical landscapes. The music on this album was inspired by the ability of music to transport us to another place and time. My hope is that each song allows you to escape, to ascend to an aerial dreamland before gently bringing you back home.
Ascend (2017) – 14 songs, 1 hr 3 min
Her song Magic Carpet from this latest album Ascend is the perfect soundtrack to this stunning video of the Cassini Saturn probe by NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), including its Grand Finale at the end of its mission last month.
