"American Romance"

I'm proud to say I am co-executive producer, together with Jeff Leibowitz, on a brilliant new CD of compositions by Bernard Weinstock called American Romance. These are piano epics recorded in Nashville with the country's best sidemen that bring classical piano into the 21st Century.

With composer-pianist Bernard Weinstock (NYC).

Travel Photos from Lisbon

Here are a few shots from my recent travels...

Chiado area of Lisbon, a strolling area for shopping and cafes.

On the roof terrace dining room of the splendid Bairro Alto Hotel, Lisbon, a leading small hotel of the world.

Sunbathing on terrace of Bairro Alto, early December. The food matches the atmosphere and the terrace draws well-dressed locals for cocktails into the night.
