Closer To The Shore, is a solo improvised piano recording I performed June 25, 1982 at the Royal Alberta Museum in Edmonton, Alberta. The piano was a Yamaha concert grand and the engineer was my good friend Doug Maynard who made the recording on a Nagra real to reel tape recorder. Unfortunately, the original reels are lost and this is a reproduction of playback from a cassette.
Listening to the playing after so many years, I had an appreciation of “young hands” with loads of technique and excitement as new ideas and challenges popped up.
