JOHN: Piano Solo
Marc Copland brings his unique style of interpretation to a project that is one of his most deeply personal efforts. “John” is a solo piano tribute to his longtime friend and collaborator, the late guitarist John Abercrombie.
On the surface these performances shimmer with an accessible and lyrical beauty, but underneath runs an ever-present bubbling current of unexpected twists and turns.
