When I was asked to record an album of improvised piano music I was hesitant at first. The delicate flow of creativity is impaired by the recording process. Flecting moments of musical truth can evaporate when confronted with the distractions and deadlines of a commercial recording studio. But the opportunity to record in a very relexed atmosphere arose. The Kostabi World art gallery in New York is also home to a Steinway grand piano, which I graciously was allowed to use. The spacious rooms are lined with the most incredible art. Armed with tube microphones, a pair of preamps and a DAT recorder, I spent a few rainy days there. This record is the result.
