Relaxing piano music by legendary artist, CB Kelton. CB’s newest CD: The Pianist
I know that I am different to most artists in how I play and select the songs I want to put on a CD for the public and my fans. First of all, I don’t just sit down and pick one song to play and perfect for a recording. Instead, I usually just sit down at the keyboard or piano and just have fun playing my favorite songs; in some cases it may be a new song I just heard and can’t quit humming or get out of my mind. There are a couple of those on this album (Hallejaluh and You raise me up). So, I just have fun and hit the record button, and when I am pleased with a song that I have done I save it on the computer. I think it is just the fact that I would play for free, even though I have been lucky enough to make a living for over 40 years just playing, and singing the thousands of songs I have in my brain. Some of these songs I have never seen the written music to. Maybe this is what sets me apart from other musicians. My dad was a stinker when it came to reading and playing music; the music had to be sung or played exactly as the composer wrote. But I don’t do that necessarily, I like to put my own expressions and feeling into each song….You will hear this in this CD as well.
