For Lenny: Episode 8
Singing at the piano - it's what I love to do. No words, just my 10 fingers and my 88 keys. The magic of telling a story through melody and harmony and the spaces between the notes - this is where I find my truth, and my ability to reach out and communicate.
On this album are many songs, some of them sung by great singers, others translated into songs without words. Lenny wrote beautiful, brilliant songs, and some of them are here for you. And then there are songs that remind me of him - a song by Sondheim, another by Ned Rorem, and this exquisite song What Shall We Remember? by Ricky Ian Gordon.
For Lenny, with love...
