"Stepping Stones," Bill Douglas' twelfth album, is probably his most personal and intimate yet.
Availability: In stock.
The recording is comprised completely of solo piano pieces and explores a wide range of tempos of beautifully written originals and interpretations of two of Douglas' favorite Beatles' songs: "Fool on the Hill" and "Julia." Douglas is an internationally acclaimed musician whose fans span all generations and musical tastes. His compositions have been played by major orchestras such as the Pittsburgh Symphony, The London Symphony and the Tokyo Philharmonic. In 1994, SOCAN (Canadian equivalent of BMI or ASCAP) presented him with their classical composer of the year award. As a jazz pianist, Bill has toured and recorded with vibraphonist Gary Burton and bassist Eddie Gomez. He also tours and records with Richard Stoltzman, and leads the Boulder Bassoon Band. He currently teaches music history and technique classes at the Naropa Institute in Boulder, CO.
