The new CD is all about new music, new sounds, and is bigger and better than ever.
At the behest of many of Stephen’s fans, there are 3 acoustic piano solos. Where The Greatest of These was fairly “piano-centric”, Stephen has taken a departure on a few of the tracks toward a more driven, guitar based sound, and some jazzy Fender Rhodes piano as well. Add just a smattering of strings here and there and some horns now and again and what you get is a wonderful new release of 12 new recordings from Stephen.
