“The idea with this record was to choose songs of my own and others’ that were personal to me and to document live performances which were intimate and unadorned,” Taylor explained.
“I wanted to reduce everything to the barest elements, record a great piano well and do as little as possible to the recordings eq or effects-wise. The mood created on the record is pretty different from that on other records I have been involved with. It feels like a special place to be able to go to.”
