Fiona's Comments

Galper has such a distinctive sound. I like to describe it as the feeling of falling down a flight of stairs without losing my feet. Chaotic but maintaining control, yet aware that serious injury might still occur. The kind of thrilling that leaves my gut a bit dizzy, but wanting more. Enjoy!

About the Album

From the startling and provocative rendition of opener "Alice in Wonderland," to a gorgeous take on "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry," the legendary pianist continues the ceaseless development of his singular piano trio concept with his bandmates of six years, bassist Jeff Johnson, and drummer John Bishop.
