"Kiss In A Shadow" is the latest solo piano release by Art Lande that follows the critically acclaimed "While She Sleeps".  Art is an incredible pianist as well as a mentor and friend of Blue Coast Records founder, Cookie Marenco, for more than 30 years.  This new series of pieces demonstrates Art's more intense and quirky renditions of classic show tunes, jazz repertoire, and American folk music.  His ability to improvise is reminiscent of an impressionist composer.  

All of these songs were recorded to DSD on the Sonoma system with Cookie Marenco producing and engineering.  Some songs on this album were recorded with Jean Claude Reynaud (of Jean Marie Reynaud speaker fame) more than 5 years ago.  The recording was mastered at OTR Studios for super resolution digital release and distributed in DSD and 9624 using the Downloads NOW! platform.

Art Lande is also known for more than a dozen albums under his own name having recorded several for ECM Records.  You can also find his as a sideman on albums by Bruce Williamson and Andre Bush available in the Downloads NOW! Catalog.
