Later this year Brian Kelly will complete the production of his next album and will once again utilize the expert services of mastering engineer Michael Romanowski (he mastered Brian’s first two albums.) Those of you interested in the audio production process might be interested in seeing this interview with Michael.
The NEW SONGBOOKS are here! I’m excited to announce the arrival of my songbook, Tomorrow’s Daydream: Solo Piano Songbook! 11 solo piano pieces, 84 pages (88 if you count the covers ;0), printed, coil-bound, on 80lb. paper, transcribed by the composer.
This spring I hope finally to record the Tomorrow’s Daydream album on a real grand piano – in all likelihood, a Fazioli F278. I’m also working on two more songbooks… a revised edition of my “Pools Of Light” songbook (currently available only as a pdf file) will be published as a printed, coil-bound songbook. Also in the works is a printed songbook of twelve new solo piano pieces.
Pre-order Tomorrow’s Daydream: Solo Piano Songbook, the companion sheet music book to Brian Kelly’s forthcoming solo piano album. The songbook will be available to ship in January 2011.

CD review of Brian Kelly / Afterplay album by Creations Magazine. “Afterplay is an exciting contemporary jazz album which engages the listener from the very first note. I was blown away by the immediacy, the insistence of the opening cut “River Rush;” a driving, smooth and satisfying offering which I only wished lasted three times longer! …”
