Notes & Reviews:

This fantastic new release is pianist Spencer Myer's debut album on the Steinway label. For this project, he has chosen a terrific collection of Rags by the eminent American composer William Bolcom. Featuring some of the newest Rags as well as classics, this album displays Bolcom's ingenious approach to a favorite keyboard medium. This carefully selected collection of Rags includes three of Bolcom's latest compositions: Estela: Rag Latino, Knockout: A Rag, and The Brooklyn Dodge. The Boston Globe lauded Spencer Meyer for "superb playing" and "poised, alert musicianship." His orchestral, recital, and chamber music performances have been heard across the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, and Asia.
