Debut CD from this critically acclaimed pianist and composer. Inspired improvisations designed to pull the listener out of the hysteria of modern life and return them to a feeling of being 'home'. Some listeners will recognize a musical match of ECM artist Keith Jarrett and Windam Hill artist George Winston in this recording. After growing up in the midwest, Eric Ostling has been composing and performing in the Boston area for over 25 years. His work has earned praise from such diverse musical figures as film composer Jamshied Sharifi (Harriet the Spy), jazz trumpeter Herb Pomeroy and teacher Charlie Banacos, bassist Rufus Reid, composers John Harbison and Karel Husa, and the Manhattan String Quartet.
