Drew Paralic Jazz Composer: News/Blog

Recording Project Coming Soon

Posted on March 10, 2019

Since my mom passed away (10/2016 ), I have been spending more time taking piano lessons/practicing/listening.  I have been composing some over the years, but spent more energy trying to increase my technique. (Although I am ok, I will always hire players far better than me when I record my stuff.) But being a jazz pianist, and attempting to live up to that moniker, goes hand-in-hand with composing and arranging.  Like listening to the music--BTW, I pledged to WBGO the other day!  Only 4 of every 100 listeners support one of the greatest stations around--I knew the new knowledge I am acquiring would get into my soul and my music eventually.  And it does just that!  Maybe more so with arranging ideas at this point.  So, I am piecing together a recording project--my fifth album, which will hopefully happen this year.
