A confessed self-taught piano virtuoso, the infamous Vancouver session cat Jason Zumpano is a real force on the ivories and, by extension, throughout some of the more notable highlights of our local music scene. His signature keyboard chromatic slides have pushed the crescendo peaks of the likes of Vancouver’s baroque footnote Zumpano, classic period Destroyer, as well as a host of others. But today, we don’t speak of Jason’s envy-invitin past catalog, no, we focus on his solo piano legacy and the arrival of another extremely limited release on taste-making blog-label Catbirdseat records!! Complete with collectable local art from Shayne Ehman, this latest offering furthers Jason’s nimble Guaraldi-esque flourishes. 12 solo piano compositions – a perfect dozen!

CD contains 12 instrumental tracks by Jason Zumpano (solo piano) + prints (2 giclee/310gsm prints of art by Shayne Ehman) in hand-colored Catbird Mini-7" sleeve. Limited Edition of 150. A few copies were sold with all five art-prints.

Recorded in the spring of 2008 and drawn with the music in mind that summer.
