King of all piano solo albums....

I love so many of these albums, Phil Aaberg, Michael Jones, George Winston, but I've probably played this one twice as much as any other. Its dynamics are very subtle, even you can miss them a few times until you notice them, and that's what sets this album apart. For me, what Pet Sounds is to Rock, this is to New Age. Thank you Phil Aaberg.

 

Fan comment from BB in Scottsdale....

Having heard you at Stockton College NJ was inspirational. Your hands looked like they’re most happy fingering & flowing over the keys – in cowboy boots! Awesome!

 

Comment from fan Matthew LaBarge....

I rarely listen to solo piano that isn't classical or jazz, but Philip Aaberg is the huge exception. When I need to remember just how beautifully a piano can be played, I'll put on one of his albums. On this one, he takes very simple melodies and small repeated cells and sews them into long, gorgeous, Escher-like tapestries. He somehow manages to make the pieces sound easy- don't be fooled: they're anything but. I'd love to be able to play like this guy.

"We have been following Philip's career from the beginning and were mesmerized from the first listening. The music still brings tears to the eyes after exhaustive sessions. It is some of the most inspiring and celestial experience that I can describe. I often dedicate it in my Buddhist practice to the holy beings as most sacred and pure experience! Thank you all for sharing your talents with the rest of us and bolstering us up with this pure mind of music.”

 

Fan comment on Field Notes...

As you will hear on Field Notes, his piano mastery is profound. His compositions too, range from the uniquely challenging to the stirringly beautiful. I enjoyed Field Notes Suite from the first listening, but after reading Barry Lopez's book, I was stunned by Phil's ability to capture the strange, frequently dark "moods" of Barry's works, and then typically, end them with hope, if not optimism. If you enjoy Field Notes, you may want to read the book and listen to the book on tape, you'll better understand the challenge of composing to these seemingly simple but strange tales. Field Notes as heard in context is all more the mind blower. Great and powerful beauty. A thousand words could not begin to describe the first phrase.
