My fifth album of originals is here! Thankfully, it was all recorded prior to our lockdown!
My interview for a Russian Blog, Facets of Art: https://facetsofart.info/music/music-interview/drew-paralic/ is now completed after many in-depth questions about my music making that started in this horrific winter through NYC's spring wakening--which, hopefully, will last this time!
TO HEAL, WE MUST REMEMBER!!
There is a haunting tune on my ROLL WITH IT, BABY album, entitled "When Midnight Rolls Around". I always enjoyed playing it, but over these unemployed days, I have been arranging it for solo piano. Of course, being a composer, I have written a couple of new sections (blues-based). The above quote that I picked up from Pres. Biden in his speech at the memorial the evening before the inauguration, really gives me hope going forward--and I get MUCH hope also through music: writing, playing and listening. I look forward to the day when I can share...
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MELODY!
I am a jazz composer and arranger with 5 self-produced CDs of original music to date. As a non-performing musician, I am very fortunate that my music has been recorded by excellent jazz quintets, quartets, trios, duos, and solo piano players. (My music is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer & YouTube--and many other digital distribution/streaming sites--as well as on CDBaby.com. Just plug in DREW PARALIC in the search areas on those sites. Or go to the 5 pages on my site--MARY'S PLACE, WINTERTIME TUNES, ROLL WITH IT BABY, BLUE PASSION, TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE--to hear 2 min clips of all tunes on that particular album. You also have the option to purchase a download of each album for a minimal price on those pages or in my STORE page. In addition, drewparalic.hearnow.com is another way to achieve access to my music.My slice of the world-wide inter web is constantly evolving; check back for new tunes and news often, and feel free to send me feedback! Also, I have over 20 years experience in piano tuning; please check out my section on that for the details. I am extremely fortunate to have completed the recording of my new album, Mary's Place, in mid January of this year. Putting the packaging together now is a bitter/sweet project: I am both intensely proud of this highly personal album, and very down about the state of America. "Drew's music is hip and understated, steeped in vintage jazz and blues, with a melodic touch all his own. Amidst his supple, spacious arrangements, the artful players stretch out beautifully." - Kirk Nurock: composer, jazz pianist, New School professor kirknurock.com
