I'm just smiling inside and out. My new album "Long Pair Bond" is out and I am getting great feedback from reviewers and listeners. I especially love all the personal notes that people are sending me through various social media sites. I know that if someone takes the time to sit down and write me a note that they really mean what they say.
The title track is available at AllAboutJazz as a free download and an editor left the following comment:
"Wow, wow, WOW! So damn pretty. This song has the restrained ambiance of a typical ECM-label piano trio, but with the buoyant soulfulness that makes Keith Jarrett's 70's American Quartet such a joy to listen to. Highly recommended."
How awesome is that? Or this one by Jon Wertheim:
“Too much spaciness can wreck a good album, and too much earth can, too. Long Pair Bond gets pretty darn close to the perfect balance.” – Adevout Musician
These comments make me feel good. Releasing a CD is a long road with a lot of work so knowing that your work is appreciated by someone out there is very valuable and encouraging.
If you would like to buy "Long Pair Bond" directly from me and you live in Iceland leave a comment or send me an email (my address is in the far right column), if you live outside of Iceland you can order it from my shop. If you like it gift-wrapped and sent directly to the recipient drop me a note. (I ship from USA for USA customers and from Iceland to European customers).
