Meditations Vol.1 (2012)  -  T.J. Martley
T.J. Martley - Piano

Using an exercise inspired by Zazen meditation masters, I spent each morning of May 2012 practicing and recording a solo piano improvisation. The result is this album, Meditations Vol. 1, ten of my most favorite improvisations from the project.

"Meditations Vol. 1, one of the best albums released by a locally-based jazz musician in 2012..."  -

"This CD of piano solos is an album of trains of thought, musical impressions of the moment. Sometimes obtuse like Monk, consistently engaging, a close listen pulls you into the music’s appealing twists and complexity."  -  KCJazzLark
