||Before heading overseas to spend 6 years in
Tokyo, I stopped at a Ted Brown's music store in Tacoma to buy some
sheet music to take with me. A young man working there recommended
some piano pieces by some guy named 'Yanni' (Greek for 'Johnny'). I'd never heard of the artist, but
I took the kid at his word and crammed the book into my
luggage. What a treasure it turned out to be!
It took me about a year to craft the music from this melodic and
ingenious composer. Not satisfied with merely a piano, I added drums,
bass, etc, to create the pieces below. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I did playing them.
