NEW CD IN PROCESS!

==========================================

I've just returned from a month in Australia, where I was able to spend 3 weeks writing music for the new Stuart & Sons 102-key piano. This is the "ultimate piano" and has spoiled me for sure!

One of my new pieces is featured on the Stuart & Sons website: http://www.stuartandsons.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=56&Itemid=63

==========================================

102 KEY PIANO NOW A REALITY!

==========================================

Gratitude was recorded on the 97 key Stuart & Sons piano. In 2009, Wayne Stuart created the ultimate - an amazing 102 key piano! There are now sounds available that simply aren't possible any other instrument. After playing it, I can't imagine wanting anything else!

OF THE AMAZING AUSTRALIAN STUART PIANO!

==========================================

I like to start each day playing Gratitude - the title piece on this CD - which represents my general attitude about life and helps me get the day started right!

The Gratitude CD is a compilation of original compositions and arrangements recorded live on a Stuart 2.9 meter (9.5 foot) grand at the Stuart & Sons showroom in Newcastle, NSW Australia.

The Stuart offers a range of sounds and effects that are a feast for the listener - and composer! - that are simply not available on other pianos. It was an honor to be the first U.S. citizen to record on this amazing instrument!

If you'd like a copy, call the store at +1-785-243-4755 and we'll ship it right out. The music is also now available on CD Baby and CD Universe. Click on the "Buy a CD" page for more information.

THE STUART PIANO

Stuart & Sons is a manufacturer of handcrafted grand pianos based in Maryville, a suburb of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.

Stuart & Sons pianos literally bring the piano from the 19th to the 21st century in terms of unusual and innovative design features, which transform the overall tonal quality of the piano. These pianos have ninety-seven keys instead of the eighty-eight keys found on conventional pianos, and every note is crystal clear! Stuart pianos use native Australian wood for construction, including ancient Tasmanian Huon Pine, Tasmanian black heart sassafras and Australian red cedar.

Stuart & Sons pianos are found at many conservatoriums and concert halls throughout the country, including: The Sydney Conservatorium of Music; The Powerhouse Museum in Sydney; The Central Queensland University Conservatorium of Music in Mackay, Queensland; The Conservatorium of Music of the University of Newcastle, Australia; The Great Hall at the University of Sydney.
