The Unforgotten Path is a collection of melodies that have inspired my musical life. Beginning when I was in elementary school, I began to improvise piano arrangements from basic lead sheets. My mother started bringing home every style of sheet music: songs from film, musical theater and rock. I remember playing those songs in my parents’ living room while taking a break from practicing my Juilliard classical repertoire. The selections on this album are all songs that allow me to sit at the piano and transcend normal, daily life and enter into my favorite musical headspace. I’ve been playing some of these melodies for decades and recording an album like this has been on my To Do list for awhile. I recorded this all on my 9 foot Steinway D in the comfort of my home studio during August, 2015. Thank you forlistening and I will see all of you… “On The Road”
