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.
