In addition to his ten talented fingers, Alan has two finely tuned ears – because he is pure perfection when it comes to choosing just the right combination of classics to give his jazz treatment to. When you start with the most brilliant works of music ever written by such luminaries as Bach, Chopin and Beethoven, to name a few, the arrangement and interpretation can make or break you. I am glad to report that Alan Storeygard has definitely made everything and broken nothing here in this masterful collection. My personal favorite was his “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring,” an arrangement I won’t soon forget.
