Things That You Can Make A Piano Do

So, every once in a while I get stuck in a rut, playing the same kind of records over and over again, the same B3 licks, the same cheesy Elton John piano romps.

When that happens, I need to just wall myself up in a quite place, and go a little nuts. What you hear on this recording is all done on one piano, using one single microphone and a laptop. Nothing is editing or processed apart from a few delays, and obviously the looper.

Hope you find it interesting.

Thanks, Bruce. It was a blast to record. Very cathartic.

Definitely not something they let you do on pop diva albums.

All I can make a piano do is display my photos and nick-nacks, and collect dust.

Very nice!

If you push them all into the piano in just the right order, you can get something that sounds pretty close to this …
