Wayne Horvitz: Forever

Wayne Horvitz is a composer and pianist who writes elegant pieces that are closer to songs in shape and sentiment than jazz standards. In "Forever," his first CD featuring piano in years, he presents a dozen sparse lush pieces, including several written for the stage and screen. Horvitz is joined by musicians from his electric band, Zony Mash, who play with grace, sensitivity and expression.
