Naked Keys pre-dates the Windham Hill/New Age solo piano recordings with their emphasis on atmosphere over melody and rhythm. This music, deeply indebted to George Gershwin, commands attention and serves up a deeply satisfying experience of lyricism, romance, and whimsy.
Margie has said, "I've always related to the piano as an orchestra. When I compose a piece of music, the fun is in finding the bassline, the string section, the polyrhythms, the melody and descants and then weaving them together - like piecing together a three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle."
These piano solo performances are deceptively simple and simply elegant... poly-rhythmic, orchestral, mesmerizing and deeply lyrical.
