An outpouring of piano improvisations, all designed for a dance performance. After years of wanting to do a piano album, I recorded these in a 5-day period in March 2002, reflecting just about everything that had been building over my 16 years of playing.
"This instrumental piano disc swept me up from the first listen with pretty melodies that made me want to close my eyes and let myself be transported by the music ... Smith's Piano isn't exactly light, but none of the 16 tracks weigh heavy on a listener either, or fade into the background, or dull the senses with repetition - as instrumental tracks sometimes can. . . Lots of talent, there, both in his fingers and, I suspect, in his mind and heart as well." - Jennifer Savage, Arcata Eye
"Luscious! Textures and Landscapes to dance to and live to! Especially useful in movement improvisation classes,guided relaxation, and movement therapy work. There's a real range of feelings in Glenn Smith's music. The tracks on these CDs help my students discover more expressive range in their movements and their lives." – Jandy Bergman, dance instructor, Humboldt State University
Glenn Smith's piano is imbued with the playfulness of a child, the wisdom of a sage and the sensitivity of someone whose ears & heart are as open as his fingers are alive." - Lila Nelson, musician
