Lynn Tredeau: Shifting Sands

Lynn Tredeau: Shifting Sands

Listen to solo piano by Lynn Tredeau on her new (4th) album Shifting Sands. There is a nice review by Kathy Parsons at Lynn describes her album this way.

The phrase “Shifting Sands” is used to describe something that is constantly changing, especially unpredictably. Change can be unsettling and makes us uncomfortable. And yet, change can be exciting and brings a new breath into life.

We all experience doubt and loneliness when things fall apart. There is sometimes a longing to turn back to the safety of the past. But still, taking a chance can bring about the greatest joy and happiness. The collection of original music on this album reflect my thoughts and feelings as I walk my path on the Shifting Sands of my life.

Listen to the new solo piano album Quiet just released by Isaac Shepard.

This ninth piano album is an EP containing 5 intimate and ambient piano tracks with peaceful cinematic accompaniment. Unlike his previous solo piano albums, it offers an up-close and personal piano experience, supported by sparse orchestral instruments.  If you ever get stressed out or need something to help calm your nerves, you’re going to love this album!

Michael Logozar & Louis Landon

I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a Whisperings solo piano concert by Michael Logozar & Louis Landon last night at the Steinway Piano Gallery showroom in Austin, Texas. We were lucky to have a front row seat listening to them play a 9-foot Steinway model D Concert Grand piano. I have attended several house concerts at Michael & Kendra Logozar’s, but this was the first time I had the chance to meet Louis and hear him in person.

Concert Playlist

It was a lovely evening listening to their music, and I thought I would share the concert playlist for you to enjoy as well. They finished the evening with a two-person improvisation based on just 3 notes selected by an audience member. Amazing talent!

Jennifer DeFrayne: Sisu

Listen to instrumental piano music by Jennifer DeFrayne on her new (2nd) album Sisu.

It embraces the spirit of the Finnish term Sisu, exploring its many characteristics as it takes you on a beautiful sonic excursion, with Jennifer on piano accompanied by these stellar musicians: Jeff Haynes (percussion), Premik Russell Tubbs (sax and EWI), Michael Manring (fretless bass), Jill Haley (english horn & oboe), Sara Milonovich (violin & vocals), Jeff Pearce (ambient guitar), and Jeff Oster (flugelhorn).

This album is dedicated to her heritage as a Finnish-American from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, during this year’s Finland 100 centenary celebration of independence. You can read more about her background, Finnish “sisu”, and this album on her web site.

Sisu is a universal capacity which we all share: perseverance, courage, endurance, determination, grit, fortitude, bravery, spirit, resilience, inner strength and more. Jennifer has this to say about how the songs on the album came about:

Each song embraces the spirit of sisu, and reflects its many characteristics. I am so thankful to all of these musicians who contributed their amazing talents creating the layers of beauty, clarity, and emotion to the music making it everything I envisioned, and more!
