A solo creative recording featuring Andy Wasserman's original composition "Flat Rock Journey": arranged, performed and recorded by him. He plays a Mason & Hamlin BB grand piano, acoustic ethnic percussion, Native American flute and all other instruments on this track - except for vocals and acoustic guitar performed by producer Tommy West. Inspired by, and dedicated to author Ken Carey through his 1994 Harpercollins book "Flat Rock Journal: A Day in the Ozark Mountains." Publishers Weekly wrote this about the book: Every spring Carey (The Return of the Bird Tribes ) takes a ritual solitary walk--dawn to dusk--during which he meditates, reminisces and renews himself. A child of the '60s, he acted on dreams of going back to the land and found an 80-acre farm at the end of a dirt road in the Missouri Ozarks. He and his wife Sherry have made a rewarding life for their family in this heavily forested region with its limestone caves, waterfalls and more than 1000 species of plants. On the "day" reported here, Carey absorbs the splendors of nature. He climbs a huge oak to survey the countryside and gets caught in a violent thunderstorm. He recalls a fight to preserve a local forest, his family's learning to co-exist with copperheads and the competition between two dowsers to locate his well. This charming memoir reflects Carey's love of nature and his commitment to preserving the environment Artist: Andy Wasserman Label: High Harmony Records Producer: Tommy West Recorded at: Somewhere In New Jersey Studio, Pottersville, NJ Recording Engineer: Tommy West and Andy Wasserman Mixing Engineer: Tommy West and Andy Wasserman Mastering Engineer: Andy Wasserman at TransMedia Sound & Music Piano: Mason & Hamlin "BB" grand piano (size: 6' 11.5") Piano Technician: Damon Falzone "Flat Rock Journey" is copyrighted intellectual and artistic property of Andy Wasserman: © copyright Andrew Roy Music (BMI) ALL RIGHTS RESERVED More information about Andy Wasserman can be found at his official websites andywasserman.com/ pianolessoncity.com/ Musical artist Andy Wasserman is certified to teach Lydian Chromatic Concept of Tonal Organization (LCCOTO) lessons for all instruments in improvisation, composition, arranging and analysis by George Russell, the creator and author of this world-renowned pan-stylistic music theory.
