"Cage originally intended this to be a soundtrack to an obscure play, but it is a minimalist masterpiece. There is only a piano and for one track we get a solo voice, but it is some of the most complicated music around. If you are reading this, take into account that this is very mental music as the play for which it was written was a drama about family abuse. The slowness of the music is also do to the fact that it allowed the star time to dance. But enough of that, like Leo Kottke's "Six and Twelve String Guitar", or Sting's "Dream of the Blue Turtles", you want to listen to it when you're in a coffehouse or a conversation with gertrude stein. Enjoy!!!"

"This is an excellent interpretation of John Cage's Four Walls. The recording quality is superb. Jay Clatons voice is remarkable and I would like to hear more from Jay. This music reminds me of Satie - Note: It was written using only the white keys of the piano. Grab this version while it's available."
