Pedal - Self Titled [Staubgold - 2008]

Peddle is an atmospheric and hypnotic collection of pieces for two Steinway and sons grand pianos played by Chris Abrahams (The Necks, etc) and well respected Sydney based pianist and conductor Simon James Phillips.

Going from awkward, sadden yet beautiful opener Security which feels likes the weary rhythmic pitter-patter of melancholy rain. To Purfomrance's playful bright note wonder from one piano while the second panio's archers out a slow rising melodic march, but in the end the secound paino joins the playful wonder of the first piano. It brings to mind a playful youngest trying to get it’s elder to play along with him and in the end he does. To the last slow melodic, sustained, felt slow shimmer and tentative movements of The Passenger, which keeps feeling like it’s going to slow to a stop but just keeps edging out its elegant yet shy wonder. All in all Pedal takes in just short of an hours worth of compelling piano music that sits somewhere between classical, jazz and expressive piano playing .

A charming, rich and varied emotional touched collection of tracks played and homed beautiful, that mangers to follow the trail of great piano music yet adds its own distinct air to the proceedings
