Album Description

Tobin Mueller, award-winning Jazz pianist, reinterprets Chopin's greatest works (Disc 1) and then performs 3 original piano sonatas as a Romantic homage to Chopin (Disc 2). “In every case, the listener has the sense that Mueller is having his personal conversation as a composer and pianist with these great composers.” - Fanfare Magazine, Notable Recordings winner. "I am struck by the intimacy, energy and flow of these performance recordings. I feel as if Tobin is giving me a personal concert in his living room. Familiar Chopin threads weave and mingle with Tobin's upbeat jazz impressions. This entire double album is a pleasurable listening experience," - Richard Schletty.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
