These sixteen short piano pieces comprise my first solo CD, the title taken from Whistler's painting Nocturne: Blue and Silver. The 12 Preludes were all written in 2007, the other pieces at different times over the last 10 years or so. Various tracks have been likened to the work of Erik Satie and Keith Jarrett, and the twin influences of classical and jazz are apparent throughout. Although there is no improvisation here, many of the pieces started life as improvised ideas which were then developed. From the humorous and playful, to the melancholy and reflective, each short piece is distinct yet connected as part of an overall landscape.
