Peace Revolution! Is my seventh CD and second solo piano CD. This CD is the product of my mission to create a peaceful world with my music. I wish to thank my family, friends, and fans for helping me in getting this CD produced. It was truly a collaborative effort. 1. 'Camelot', the first cut of the CD, was the all time favorite. Bringing in the feeling of cantering horses in medieval times, damsels in distress, and knights in shining armor, this music is a neo classical music box of a track. 2. 'Sundance' is a track from my Joyous Spirit CD that begged to be put into solo piano form. So, here it is. 3. 'Skye's Song' is another track from Joyous Spirit CD. Again, it was a song that needed to be redone as a solo piano piece. Skye was actually a little confused about the new CD. She was thinking that I had just re-released Joyous Spirit as a solo piano CD - which I had considered. But I had many new pieces of music, and I didn't think that all of the songs on Joyous Spirit would have worked as solo piano music. 4. 'Ancestors' gave me a haunting feeling of the past. And I thought about all the people who have lived and died before me. I felt a certain sadness and love for them as well as connectedness with my immediate family members as well as my extended family of all mankind. 5. Ah, 'Elegant Lady.' Duke had 'Sophisticated Ladies' and now I have 'Elegant Lady.' This, in a way, is a musical tribute to Erik Satie more than to Duke. I kept the chords very open. Although some other takes of 'Elegant Lady' began with low bass notes followed by chords, this particular take started with very little bass. I actually wrote this, on the spot, at a recording session. I was wandering around musically, and I managed to zero in on this chord progression and melody. Then i went for a few takes of it. I am very happy with this cut and I send it out to all the elegant ladies in my life. More track information to come soon... Love and Peace Always and Everywhere! Louis.
