Spiriti will be my next album of solo piano music. I've never worked harder or longer on a piece of music.
I've always been drawn to albums that hold together as a work. Each of my piano albums so far have been written so that it is especially satisfying to listen from beginning to end in order. Spiriti was written even more so with that in mind. Many themes develop, and many recur in the course of the album, so much so, that it's very easy to consider it a single piece. This chart, only slightly out of date, shows some of the recurring themes highlighted.
(Here's the track list.)

My buddy Bob Wright has started a new music series called MOTH, which stands for Music On The Hill. It takes place on the second Friday of each month at the Roanoke Unity church, which is situated on a gorgeous wooded hill. He's asked me to play the second concert of the series, so I'm going to play my first concert in ...lots of years.
The first half will be the entire Spiriti program that I've been working on since October came out. The second half will be a mix of originals and some other favorite pieces.
The concert in Nov 13 at 7:30. See MOTH for more details.
