About the Music
The Especially… series has been created by and for fans of Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch in Carmel-By-The-Sea, where I have been house pianist since 2010, I play the early sets and another pianist plays later. He had a CD for sale, and the folks that liked my plating started asking when I would have one.
…By Popular Demand(?)
So I decided to find the songs that I most enjoy performing, and the songs most requested (oddly, I get very few requests for either “Misty” or “Play Misty For Me” and I do not wish to insult Errol Garner’s iconic recording, so while I am happy to play it, I won’t record it for this series.) I put these together into the first of what is an ongoing series of albums driven by the audience.
