Album Description

"Instead of Heaven" is a collection of original solo piano meditations. The pieces are arranged as an instrumental song cycle, creating a musical journey using Greek myths as inspiration. The music is fluid and modal, melding Romanticism, Impressionism, post- bop Jazz and New Age. Mueller freely takes from many genres, folding them into his own unique style. "Breathtaking" - George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly. "Inventive, sensual, flowing with contemplative ease" - Stereobangers. "Never predictable, always takes us new and someplace surprising" - Kathy Parson, Mainly Piano

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
