The final sound-tweaking (EQ and such) took me longer than I expected, but I have now finished a full-length piano CD, recorded with the GAS.
The CD is entitled Den Haag (the Dutch name of my native town The Hague). The track list is as follows:
1. Body and soul 5.46
2. Prelude to a kiss 3.40
3. New old age 6.36
4. A space oddity 6.12
5. Wheeling stranger 10.22
6. Lambent 5.20
7. Resurrection man 4.13
8. Mr Bley 7.06
(Jeroen van Vliet)
9. Wintersweet 5.38
10. Asides 6.42
Total time 61.35
Compositions are by me, except as noted. Earlier versions of some of the pieces were posted on this forum.
If you wish, you can buy the CD for a mere $7.50; simply send an email to mindset at tiscali dot nl. Meanwhile, you can listen to the teaser at:
Hi Jan, The teaser shows this to be a smooth and mellow CD of some standards and your own compositions. I have sent an e-mail and look forward to hearing your work on the keys. Good luck with this CD!

Many congratulatons on the CD, Jan! May I wish
you every success with it.
I've heard some of the pieces previously in the
forum, of course, and was impressed with your work:
People will certainly be getting their money's worth
with this -- over an hour of superbly written, beautifully
played, well recorded material.
Hi Jan, I received my copy of your CD yesterday and am now listening to the last couple of your fine original compositions. "Lambent" , "Wheeling Stranger", and "Wintersweet" are just sublime. Your take on "A Space Oddity" is great too.
You really show the dynamic range of the Steinway off on that one.
Thanks so much for your wonderful music which I will be listening to for a long time, (there's a lot to absorb).
I can wholeheartedly recommend this CD to the members of the forum who enjoy jazzy piano and expertly crafted compositions. Thanks! John
