Hello!
I have just finished an interview with highly talented American pianist Chad Lawson. His album, Set on a Hill, has been nominated for Whisperings' Album of the Year 2009. Anyway, I found his responses very interesting and I think people here might enjoy the interview. It can be found here:

www.piano-heaven.co.uk

And thank you Marimorimo for your kind words. If you like Elijah, try Philip Aaberg (Blue West / Live from Montana) both of which feature on Piano-Heaven. You might also wish to check out the work of Michael Allen Harrison- "Composer / Pianist" is a good place to start. Again, this is featured on the site.

I am hoping to interview Elijah soon.

Best Wishes to all,
Stephen

And I thought he snuck that one by you! wink

Anyway, IMO, Keith Jarrett's playing on Koln COncert was the perfect fusion of new age and jazz.

@Stephen C.: Thanks a lot for the recommendations! I'll check out Philip Aaberg and Michael Allen smile

Your interview with Chad Lawson was very interesting. Now I'm curious about him too, especially since he's worked with David Nevue. Now 'Set on a Hill' joins my very looong CD wish list. Arghh, if only international shipping wasn't such a pain and so expensive! frown

Philip Aaberg is by far one of my favs. I heard his album after searching through a list of others and instantly thought "now this is what I'm looking for". The album is High Plains.

As a professional pianist, I was just taken by his talent. Very creative, lyrical and although you can tell he's such a proficient musician technically, he keeps doesn't display this "look what I can do" air about him.

Kieth is may be talented to some, but he's sick and I think he gives music a bad name.

You listen to this, and if you can say you honestly like it, then .... what can I say!

I can honestly say I love it. I listen to him often. He exudes music from every pore of his body.

That's an excellent way to describe it. thumb Much/most of Jarrett's work wouldn't "count" as new age, but the Koln Concert surely does in my estimation.

Say, VirtuosicOne, are you the reincarnation of the PW Member Formerly Known as Virtuosic? If so, welcome back! smile

Er, if not, welcome to the forum anyway! wink

Yeah, Yanni, who would like him.....

He earned Grammy nominations for his album, Dare to Dream, and the follow-up, In My Time.

He has accumulated more than 35 platinum and gold albums globally, with sales totaling over 20 million copies.

His compositions have been included in ALL Olympic Games television broadcasts since 1988...

And yes, Glass is new age....

looks like he is having some heroin nodding and body tremors. Honestly. How does one not realize they look like an utter fool at that age. Has no had the gall to just say straight up, you look like a junkie about to nod off. It would be less distracting if he just told the crowd while playing how emotional this is and how it is kicking your ass instead of those jerky body contortions.

One of the few musicians that just needs to be slapped very hard and told NO! . Stop it. It isn't cool. Slap,

Jazzwee, and some others, perhaps. I wonder if it would not be nice with a: Big Time Sick Pianist thread. I think I am sick enough to qualify.
Another interesting thread would be: Todays most stupid post on Pianoworld. On this very day its really really hard to qualify for that.
Am waiting with abated breath for next entry, wherever it might turn up.

I mentioned Aaberg on probably page 1 of this thread. He is excellent. If you like High Plains, get Live From Montana.

Yes, I enjoy Philip Aaberg- I love the album Blue West, especially the track where a passing train honks its horn in a piece about the railways during a live performance, much to the amusement and delight of all concerned.

Anyway, I am assuming that if you're reading this thread, you must have an interest in New Age piano or contemporary piano music if that is your preferred term.

To that end, I am hoping that as many of you as possible would like to give some exposure to artists that you enjoy listening to. If there is an album or even if it is just a track that you think deserves wider exposure, please submit the information to me by visiting the web-site below (and following the link).

New-Age piano has given me so much pleasure over the years, that this is just one tiny way in which I can give something back.

Thank you in advance for your recommendations.

Well, two great new albums to tell you about: There's a new Bernward Koch album out entitled 'Silent Star', with some beautiful piano melodies, and there's a great Chad Lawson CD just released called 'The Piano'. Both are excellent, and are reviewed in full at www.piano-heaven.co.uk
