The brilliantly gifted Cuban-born composer and arranger Chico O'Farrill (1921-2001) is internationally recognized as one of the genre- creating fathers of Latin Jazz. His Suite could be this expert and versatile composer's love letter to the piano and to those he knew who used it so well, including Alison Deane who is his daughter-in-law. Also a noted arranger whose skills demonstrate a chameleon-like fluency that succeeds in every genre, O'Farrill thrills by teasing the delicate and ferocious capabilities of the instrument's broad dynamic range. This is music that suggests the endless possibilities of a vivid imagination when seated comfortably at the keyboard coaxing sweet musical flirtations. Robert Nathaniel Dett (1882-1943), born in Canada but mostly residing in the United States, was an early trailblazing Afro American composer of classical music. The exciting five pieces inside his "In the Bottoms" Suite from 1913 join his facility for piano writing with his adeptness for creating beautiful and lyrical vocal melodies. By skillfully blending folk idioms with those from spirituals and drawing upon the piano's vast palette of sonic hues, these pieces treat the listener to a combination of lovely post romantic piano writing with modern 20th century Americana style and techniques. It is unique and sophisticated music that celebrates that most profound of all complexities ... simplicity. Fred Patella Alison Deane, pianist, has performed across America and Europe, and has received numerous prizes, awards, and grants. A native New Yorker, Ms. Deane holds Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Manhattan School of Music where she was given the school's highest honor, the Harold Bauer Award. The New York Times described her Alice Tully Hall solo recital as " a dazzling affair...has the fingers of a really first-class technician... "
