Piano virtuoso stan wiest offers “music you will love –volume one: music to drive by” – draws from the great american songbook and beyond; wiest’s wonderful technique and flair for interpretation are front-and-center. A generous 17 tracks of solo piano and it lives up to its title.”
“stan wiest has the perfect touch for the american songbook. You can recognize the melody because he cares about the composers. A delightful cd, one you'll listen to many times.
You’re a delightful guest. You have something to say and you say it in a most interesting way.”
"move over clayderman...there's a new kid at the 88's who not only tickles the ivories, but gives us 17 tracks of pure american songbook pleasure. That "new kid" is stan wiest, a piano wizard. Stan's "music to drive by" is "pure piano". My radio show audience love's stan!
I can't wait for volume 2"
