Composer and fine-art photographer Patrick Burke's CD of original solo piano compositions cheerfully entitled The Butler's Bullfinch consists of memorable melodies played in a simple and very accessible style. There is also an element of humor and playfulness to Burke's music which is in short supply among his solo piano contemporaries. An eight-page booklet included with the CD features Burke's fine-art skills with a photo illustration for each of the 13 tracks. A bust of Mozart confidently seated in an empty sardine can corresponds to his neoclassical Mozart In Sardinia. The title of the CD and several of the tracks were inspired by writer P.G. Wodehouse. "Like other composers I write beauty and drama, but I also believe there's never enough humor in the world and I'm not afraid of writing songs that are overtly happy" says Burke.
