|LIZ DURETTE FOUR IMPROVISATIONS Limited Vinyl LP
Ms. Durette is a talented keyboardist and improvisor living in Baltimore, Maryland. With this new release, she presents us with a new vision of what an album of solo keyboard music can be. Her music is dually rooted in both the Western, Romantic Classical tradition, and in contemporary improvisation and spontaneous composition. What emerges is a gorgeous album that is as intelligent and novel as much as it is also lovely to listen to. Ms. Durette has taken on the Rhodes electric piano as her primary instrument, and with this album she fully exploits the unique and beautiful qualities of this instrument. The music is gestural and free, and mingles and shifts from heart-centered lyrical melodies to deep interior harmonic exploration. This album is sure to be an instant cult classic and will be a delight to fans of improvised music, keyboard music, experimental jazz, and modern composition.
