It was not until 1975 that Keith Jarrett’s Cologne Concert successfully showcased the power of solo piano for the wider public. Seven years later, the 25-year-old Andy Lumpp has come up with a solo album showing great evergreen potential: his own very personal musical statement.

Lumpp`s often praised style is lucid, with a classically trained touch incorporating all imaginable dynamic nuances, and featuring an occasionally astounding harmonic range: every note delivers an acoustic experience.
