"4NYC". A Portion Of The Proceeds Will Be Donated to charity To Aid the Families Of The Victims Of The World Trade

Center Attack.


March 11, 2002 - Nyack, NY - In what words can never say, music can

calm the heart, ease the mind, and soothe the soul. Jordan Rudess'

latest live CD release, "4NYC" is a celebration of life, of the one's

we love, and of healing. A part of the proceeds from the sale of

"4NYC" will go to charity to help the families of the

victims and the Heroes of September 11, 2001.


A most heartfelt and soulful gift by one of America's leading

contemporary keyboardists, Jordan has captured on CD his September

25, 2001 American Red Cross Benefit Concert for the Victims of the

World Trade Center. With additional specially recorded, original

instrumental compositions, Jordan delivers one of the most dynamic

and impassioned life celebratory piano and keyboard performances of

his recording career.


"4NYC" features Jordan performing improvised compositions on a

nine-foot Steinway grand, a Kurzweil 2600 and a Korg Karma. The CD

also features a whimsical version of 'Mary Had A Little Lamb' as

requested by Jordan's daughter, Ariana.


Produced with help from his wife Danielle, Jordan's September 25,

2001 benefit concert took place Helen Hayes Performing Arts Center in

Nyack, NY. The performance was promoted through Jordan's and Dream

Theater's Internet community, as well as local newspapers and radio



A week after the performance, work began on mixing and mastering the

performance for CD release. Jordan felt his improvised compositions

represented some of the evening's best material and became motivated

to record additional compositions in his home studio to complete the



Jordan states, "The concert and creation of the 4NYC CD was a way for

me to do something positive for people after the tragedy of September

11th. Music has always been my most effective means for expression.

The music on this CD, perhaps more than anything else I've done,

comes straight from my heart. I hope it brings some small comfort,

peace of mind and joy to all who listen to it."
