Gregory Rogove's album, Piana, is a collection of simple, melancholic yet beautiful instrumental pieces for piano that were composed by Rogove and inspired by the French Impressionist piano music of Erik Satie and Claude Debussy. The songs were written in Mexico and recorded at Woodstock; John Medeski performs on the album as well. The release includes a bonus DVD which is like a virtual "gallery" - you can click on images hanging on the wall of the virtual gallery and view or listen to remixes of the solo piano compositions as interpreted by both musicians -- Devendra Banhart, Violens, Lucky Dragons, The Bees, BIlly Martin of Medeski Martin & Wood -- and visual artists -- photography by Lauren Dukoff, a collage by Fabrizio Moretti of the Strokes and videos by Steve and George Gorrow and Greg and Diana Garcia.
