CD Duration: 56.03 / Year: 2008
2008 release of brand new recordings of easy-listening jazz standards, played as only Alan Haven can.
“These temptingly packaged tracks are music for the soul; each one an intricate work of art in its own right” (Joan Dovener – Keyboard Player magazine issue 326 (July 2008)
About this Recording:
This CD is a typical example of today’s remarkable advances in music technology. One need do no more than listen to this production to hear just what can now be done with nothing more than a keyboard or two, albeit connected up to a host of very high-tech gear.
Such gear, including various sound modules (the hardware) together with computer based techniques of assorted sound fonts, reverb and chorus plug-ins and a multitude of other various special effects (the software).
This is the world of the demanding requirements of the professional musician, however, a really exciting spin-off is that home keyboards utilising this same kind of technology can now get you remarkably close to these very same sort of results. Just one thing though… it will help if you can play a bit!
