It’s been about a year now since I’ve released a piano album. From a Distance reveals the best of what I’ve been able to produce throughout the year when we’ve been social distancing and sheltering in place. Unlike previous albums – which were recorded either with a Motorola or a Samsung smartphone, all selections were recorded with either an iPhone 11 or an iPhone 7. The result is a much higher sound quality. I listened last night, and it really gives the listener the feeling that they are attending a private live piano concert.
Here are the twelve selections on From a Distance:
The Letter – Wayne Carson
Desperado – Glenn Frey & Don Henley
The Way We Were – Marvin Hamlisch
We Three Kings – John Henry Hopkins Jr.
In the Bleak Midwinter – Harold Darke
Be Thou My Vision – Traditional (Irish Origin)
All the Things You Are – Jerome Kern
Somebody Loves Me – George Gershwin
I Get a Kick Out of You – Cole Porter
I’ve Never Been in Love Before – Frank Loesser
Never Never Land – Jule Styne
From a Distance – Julie Gold
So far the album is available only on CD. If (like some of us) you still have an affinity for that particular medium, why don’t you leave a mailing address in the Contact form, and I’ll pop one in the mail. I do request a $15 donation. (You can make that where it says “donate” below the page here, or get back to me if you don’t use PayPal.)
I really think you’ll enjoy it. (I’ll also be posting my version of “In the Bleak Midwinter” in about an hour, and “From a Distance” next Friday.)
Please donate to Eden in Babylon.
