Geoff Eales - Synergy (CD)
Release Date: 10/05/10
Eclectic, genre-busting virtuoso pianist Geoff Eales throws caution to the wind in a great solo album.
After twenty years as one of London's top session pianists, arrangers and composers, the inspirational Geoff Eales has rediscovered his passion for improvised music in recent years. With three highly acclaimed albums to his name ('Mountains of Fire', 'Red Letter Days' and 'Facing the Muse') showcasing his formidable trio, Geoff has decided to throw caution to the wind and go completely solo for his debut album for Basho Records - 'SYNERGY' (SRCD 11-2). In 'Synergy', Geoff fearlessly tears down musical barriers with the breadth of his vision. A truly genre-busting album, it draws from a rich variety of sources including gospel, blues, rock, Latin, Messiaen, Bach and Debussy, but the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. This eclectic CD includes highly personal takes on well-loved standards as well as some moving performances on his own powerful compositions.
