FIVE O'CLOCK SOMEWHERE
FOURTH ALBUM 2020
Featuring Piano Works by Huguette Lavigne
REQUIEM sets the mood in a non-relenting message or plea. It is grand in its simplicity, tones and chords and emits a sense of urgency. In these times of uncertainty, this simple but grand statement is relevant, as it echoes the fears and despondency that humanity is facing. The title is REQUIEM, because much has been lost. Listen to the mournful, ominous sound, a slow solemn tolling at the end.
The rest of the collection is unrelated in tone and mood to this piece. I hope you enjoy it all!

Old school piano jazz. It's an easy going, smooth flowing, just plain cool jazzy piece and good for the soul.
A guy sits down in a smoky room at a large black grand and plays around with jazzy swirls, runs and melodic twists. He doesn't take himself too seriously and it all ends with notes slipping down a long glissando and the bubbles on his brain disappear.
