Solo piano works, composed and performed by Riley, recorded live on 7/16/95. "Riley's travels across the musical map find a home base in these solo piano pieces. This album distills a career of experience as a barroom piano player, student of Indian and Western classical traditions, founder of minimalism, advocate of just intonation, composer/improviser, and master of many keyboards. Interestingly, this synthesis takes place in each piece. Ideas shift and transform organically and seamlessly, one melting into another by imperceptible increments, until you realize the music has metamorphosed radically into something very different. It's astonishing that such a diverse range of elements can coalesce, across the entire keyboard, from a visceral rumbling bass to ecstatic figurations in the highest register." --Sarah Cahill.
