Album Notes

5 piano pieces recorded at various locations from 1983-89.

Personnel: "Blue" Gene Tyranny (piano, keyboards).

These live keyboard performances from1983-1989 include "Five Takes on the Nocturne With and Without Memory" (1989) for solo piano, "The Country Boy Country Dog Intro" (1984) for piano and tape, "The Intermediary Following Traces of the Song" (1988) for acoustic piano and live sampling keyboard, "The Intermediary With a Rendition of Stardust" (1983) for solo piano and electronics, and "Sunrise or Sunset in Texas" (1983) from a film soundtrack. Kyle Gann of The Village Voice describes "Blue" Gene Tyranny as possessing "Cecil Taylor's keyboard energy, Morton Feldman's ear," and states, "The most original aspect of (his) works is the way they create continuity: they're tonal, yet rigorously asymmetrical. They satisfy the ear without letting it take anything for granted. They evolve...with the labyrinthine irreversibility of deep psychic forces." ~ All Music Guide
