Can we have a bit more information on where this album is from?
Here’s a review from Kevin Crawford from Ryan Malloys website
For me Ryan Molloy’s music is a constant source of amazement, inspiration and sanguineness. Piano player extraordinaire, Ryan’s prowess and command of this celebrated instrument is unquestionable. But it’s not his technique or ‘chops’ alone that impress me. It’s his musical mind, his unique approach to accompaniment and harmony and his unwavering spirit and mettle that shines through in every move he makes. I’ve no idea where he got his box of crayons but the colours he plays with ain’t from the same box the rest of us have that’s for sure.
I love that Ryan has brought on board the soaring songstress Shauna Mullin who delivers four gems that shine beautifully within the context of the other traditional melodies too.
Ryan Molloy’s understanding and feel for the tunes he plays combined with his giftedness and maverick mind makes for music of great depth and beauty. Ryan’s playing is definitive and this album ‘Pianophony’ is a milestone.
