Click the arrow once or twice to play excerpts from Bells Of Earth in the jukebox.
This long-awaited follow-up to 1980's Ancient ships does more than confirm
the promise of that fine record.
It establishes Godfrey as a pianist and composer of the first order,
one who can stand easily with Jarrett, Corea,
and other masters of,
shall we say, the new classicism.
Godfrey's work is a refuge in troubled times.....
John Griffin, The Montreal Gazette
Romanza, a wistfull waltz composed of delicately spun accelerando phrases
is romanticism at its most evanescent.
The pianism is precise, the touch classical rather than jazz.....
Downbeat. 4 Stars.
I've received and reviewed many solo piano LPs over the past two
years but none are as distinctive as Bells Of Earth.
