Listen & pre-order

“Nature is in itself an improvisation. It can never be an accurately nor consistently planned thing. It should also be noted an extreme climate resonates with emotional wherewithal,” shares Gelb. “Thus, these captured pieces of pianic atmospheres are simple paintings of the horizon, a semi still life, the net result of allowance, and never intended to be drawn again. Resonance achieved via residence.”

Recorded in the Barrio Viejo neighborhood of Tucson, Arizona (inside a framed section of an adobe home insulated with denim to flatten the reverb and suck up the nuance) Weathering Some Piano is a collection of thirteen improvisational compositions held together by the cohesion of their creator’s signature style.
