CD Reviews

Super syncopation

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know why this CD is only listed in the classical section: it should also be listed in the popular music section. The music of Billy Mayerl and Lothar Perl has never been played so well, not even by the composers themselves! Bravo, Mr. Hassan!"
Classy piano

"This is piano music of the highest order - catchy tunes and flawless performance. I couldn't buy this CD from Amazon so I bought it directly from Shellwood."
Excellent tunes, excellent performance

"Billy Mayerl, Lothar Perl and Carroll Gibbons are not exactly household names, and they probably never will be. Mayerl wrote over 500 tunes and was the director of the light music division of the BBC. Perl, among other accomplishments, was the music director of the Ernie Kovacs show and was occasionally on camera. Gibbons was an American pianist/composer/bandleader who achieved fame in England.This music is melodic, varied and highly catchy. My favorite pieces are "Hollywood Stars," "Grasshopper Dance" and "A Garden in the Rain." Hassan's performances are, as always, top notch and right in character with the era. Incidentally, I bought my CD directly from the Shellwood Productions website."
