The original Pianarchy album is available on all streaming and download services~ really excited to officially release a follow up this summer! A few facts about the debut Pianarchy record:
1. All pieces were improvised on the spot.
2. The piano was a 9ft Fazioli concert grand
3. It was my return to the piano after a horrific hand injury (and surgery) the year before. A long story for another time...
I hope you enjoy this record and I look forward to you hearing the next ones! Thanks for listening~ RG

Wanted to share my original Pianarchy album, volume 1 from 1999.

Besides being on Youtube and all streaming services, it is available on iTunes for downloading. Thanks for listening~RG
Been a while since I posted here~ wanted to share a playlist of some recent piano improvisations starting with a few from this past Saturday at the Valley Ragtime Stomp in Canoga Park, CA. Have a musical day!
