What makes an outstanding composer? He has to master his instrument, understand music as a concept of art and practice and of course … he has to be able to compose very well!!! For me, and certainly for many others, Andy McKee is an outstanding musician. The imagination he puts into his compositions is unique. Not only the chords and the spinning of motifs and melodies, but the representation of a sound world that distinguishes him, makes Andy McKee a great composer from my point of view. A few years ago I was so happy when I came across one of his works, which he had composed for piano. I had decided to record this piece for piano myself – with a few small embellishments on my part. After a few tries, I listened to my own version of Andy McKee’s piece June … just listen to it.
Thank you Andy for all the great music. I am waiting for your next albums.
