I thought it might be fun to share with you that today marks the debut of my new album, "My Blue Someday." I wrote the songs and played solo jazz piano on this release from Fervor Records. I couldn't let today go by without telling my forum friends.

In my lengthy career, I've been lucky enough to participate in a wide-variety of professional projects; but today marks my first full-length, solo album release.

Here are some links, in case you'd like to have a listen:

Apple Music | My Blue Someday

Spotify | My Blue Someday

YouTube | My Blue Someday

Amazon Music | My Blue Someday

Thank you all for your support over the years!

Best,

Geoff

thanks for sharing, Geoff. Listening to "An Evening in Madrid" as I'm typing this. Can't wait to hear the entire "album". cheers


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

Thanks, Joe! I've often wondered what I sound like too. wink (I've created music in a great many styles over the years.) At least we know what I sound like creating jazz at this point in time.

Best,

Geoff

HI Geoff, I clicked on these links and came up short. So I headed over to geoffgrace.com and helped myself to your tasty orchestral cues. Love the compositions! Keep up the good work!

Thanks, Jerry and Dave!

As for the missing music at the links above, the label pulled all the files because some clipping and distortion were present. The album has been remastered by the label and will be sent to the distributor again later this week. I'm not sure when the distributor will get the new files uploaded, but I hope it will be soon.

Thanks again, everyone! cool

Best,

Geoff

I can't find it on the youtube link--says 'not available' but I'm in Mexico...though that shouldn't make a difference. I don't have spotify or apple music. Darn!

The files have been replaced with properly mastered copies, so all should now sound fine.

Thanks again, everyone, for your kind words and support!

Best,

Geoff

Hey Geoff – wonderful stuff all around! I especially liked "Come Back To Me."
