Listen to solo piano music (with iPad loops, effects, and layers) by Chad Lawson on his new album Re:Piano.
Here is how he describes this album.
At a time where iPads are center stage and tradition falls to the touchscreen, I ask myself “Is the piano dead?” With technology creating everything faster, newer, better and in every color, perhaps the 88s need an update; an adjustment even. Or, maybe it’s not the piano that needs the adjustment; maybe it’s us.
As a Steinway artist I find myself asking how I can connect with an audience whose view of the piano is antiquated but an iPad as second nature? Pairing the traditional (piano) with contemporary (iPad), I crafted an album using the piano as my ‘instrument’ and an iPad to create loops, effects and multiple layers using the software, Ableton Live. Before me sat a vast palette of colors, effects and inspiration like never before. Yet at the core of it all; the piano.
My hope in this recording is to create a new curiosity, a new approach and most importantly a new awareness of what can be made from the keys of black and white. And while the traditionalist in me would prefer to remain ‘un-plugged’, the optimist in me believes inspiring the next generation is only a touchscreen away.
Enjoy his new album.

Listen to instrumental piano music by Anne Trenning and Friends on the new (4th) album Beautiful Song.
It features a collection of original music by composer and pianist Anne Trenning, with curated cover selections from a multi-genre spectrum. She is joined by James Todd (cello), Bill Leslie(Celtic flute), John Magnie (accordion), Jeff Oster (flugelhorn), Ciro Hurtado (guitar), Jane Brendle (violin), David Meyer (cello), Josh Daniel (guitar), Mark Schimick (mandolin), Brandon Bush (accordion), Fred Hiscock (tenor saxophone), Jennifer Dior (flute), and Rick Dior (percussion).
“Beautiful Song by Anne Trenning and Friends is a musical box of chocolates in that each piece is different from the others. Instrumentation and genre vary from piece to piece, but the title really does say it all and could easily be ‘Beautiful Songs.’ This is my favorite of Anne Trenning’s albums so far!” — Kathy Parsons, MainlyPiano.com
