Check out pianist David Lanz at his site. He has been around for a while but I thought about a cd of his I had years ago and visited his site out of curiosity. He has free listening demos there. The older albums are my favorite especially "Return to the Heart," his second best selling album. This piano solo album is very quiet and intimate with a hint of mystery. He even has variations on a theme from Pachelbel's Canon in D Major that is really nice. However, his later albums tend towards Jazz with the added instruments of upright bass and drums... thus they don't impress me that much (I'm not a huge Jazz fan unless its live).

For those of you in Sacramento and surrounding areas, I also found out that he will be performing in Dixon March 28th and 29th at 8:00pm at the Dixon Performing Arts Theater. The tickets are only between $15-$25 online, click here or by calling 800.838.3006. They are also available at Dixon City Hall. If I were in town, I would definitely be there. Since I was introduced to his music I have always wanted to hear him live.
