CD Reviews

Entertaining, witty; will broaden your musical horizons!
Aaron Gangross | Here and There | 06/13/2000

"I never used to listen to solo piano playing but bought this CD based soley on the fact that T.C. is the performer. What a pleasant surprise! The first track ("Cold Rain") doen't do anything for me but the rest of the CD is wonderful. Two tracks ("Goin' Home" and "Dark Star") also feature the outrageous guitar playing of Henry Kaiser. This CD is packed with music and covers a wide range of styles. You'll get your money's worth!"
This is a Classic!

"If you appreciate piano music---this is the Cd for you!"

"So you think all Scientologists are BAD? So do I; Tom is an exception who plays piano with a clarity & brilliance (tone-wise) that is rather sparkling & gem-like. It took awhile to really appreciate the bare bones production approach. In the years I've owned this disc, I've grown to enjoy the music with repeated exposure. I would love to have heard a Clarinet added to a few of the tracks

The Henry Kaiser duets are a definite bonus & make for a rich, intelligent virtuosity between the two. No piano player could have been much starker a contrast to the style of Ron McKernan (Pigpen) when T. C. joined the Dead. Here in a Bride Stripped Bare fashion you can hear the uniqueness of his rather "avant" style. Also though you'll hear touches of Country & Boogie-Woogie.

All around a satisfyingly unique solo outing.
