In the fall of 2011 David Thor Jonsson recorded a session and a solo concert at Telus Studio in The Banff Centre, Banff, Canada -- the heart of the Canadian Rockies. These recordings have come to be Piano Improvisations II. In and around Banff are magical places. They are ancient, huge, quiet; some are sacred. Being surrounded by the enormity of the Rockies makes one feel very small, and prone to wander off for many hours, gazing at the endless beauty and power. Lake Minnewanka's name translates to "Water of the Spirits" from the Dakotan Siouan language of Nakoda. Aboriginal people long inhabited areas around Lake Minnewanka, as early as 10,000 years ago. You can still feel the spirits there... Some of this music is a dedication to that invisible power of human energy. This is the second album in the solo piano improv series, following 2012's Improvised Piano Works I (BROADCAST 001LP).
