Improvised Piano Works II

by Davíð Þór Jónsson

In the fall of 2011 DÞJ recorded a session and a solo concert in Telus studios, Banff centre in the Rocky mountains of Canada

These recordings have come to be Piano Improvisations II. In and around Banff are magical places.They are ancient, huge, quiet and some are sacred. Being surrounded by the enormousness of the rockies makes one very small and wander off sometimes for many hours gazing at the endless beauty and power. Lake Minnewanka means "Water of the spirits" in Dakotan Siouan language. Aboriginal people long inhabited areas around Lake Minnewanka, as early as 10,000 years ago.

You can still feel the spirits there...

Some of the music is a dedication to that invisible power and being of human energy 

This is the second album of the piano solo improv series.
