Just Playin' Memories
With studio grand piano, this CD is a rich eclectic variety of hit and pop music from jazz to musicals to country to classical. It's all familiar music that you will find variously exciting and soothing. While in the service, Stan occasionally played in a lounge in Spokane, Washington. Style similar to Billy Tipton and Andre Previn. As an eight year old kid in Topeka, Kansas, he used to race his older sister home from school to get to the piano first. The tracks on this recording vary from pieces in musicals like, 'All I Did for Love' (from A Chorus Line), 'Memories' (from Cats), 'My Funny Valentine' (from Babes in Arms), to country hits like 'For The Good Times' (by Kristofferson), 'Lyin' Eyes' (The Eagles) and 'Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys'. Great music from movies includes 'Evergreen' (by Streisand), 'Over the Rainbow' (from Wizard of Oz), and 'The Rose' (by Amanda McBroom). Classical excerpts from Chopin's famous 'Etude in E Major' and Rachmaninoff's 'Eighteenth Variation' are included to soooth you, --- and then the rock hit 'Old Time Rock and Roll' (by Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band) will jolt you upright again! There's lots more on the CD, so check it out and enjoy!
