McDonas, Thollem – “Racing The Sun Chasing The Sun ” – [Creative Sources Recording]

Solo Piano: ???This album consists of live recordings of the first halves of two solo piano concerts laid side by side, woven in and out of each other…All music is in the order it was performed.??? So say the liner notes to this CD from innovative, genre-defying Bay Area pianist Thollem McDonas. His virtuosity is evident on every track, as is his classical training. The intensity of McDonas??? limber fingers racing and chasing each other on the keys is alternately eye-opening and mesmerizing. If you enjoy classical music, piano in particular, this CD is for you. Even if you don???t, you may want to slip one of these tracks into your set to shake things up a bit–they are accessible in a KFJC kind of way. PGM: Tracks end as early as 0:11. Picks: 3, 5, 6, 9.
