From the media release
Purrfect Records and ade ishs Music present
Four Seasons Live by ade ishs
Following the studio album Four Seasons Suite, Purrfect Records in association with ade ishs Music present Four Seasons Live, a Blu-ray™ disc title containing video of a live solo piano concert by ade ishs, released on 20 October this year.
Melbourne jazz icon Steve Sedergreen says about ade in the album liner, ‘I have become a great admirer of his approach and desire to succeed as a contemporary jazz pianist”. This release is a reflection of ade’s approach in various aspects of music, composition and performance including improvisation. The kick-starting and feature piece, ‘Four Seasons Suite’, is over half an hour long. There are many improvised sections in this piece, a fact that listeners can find out by comparing the live and studio versions. The second live set contains six shorter pieces varying in styles, from the emotional lyrical rhapsody ‘Thank You’ to the carefree straight-ahead jazz swing ‘Blues for Chelsea’.
In addition to the live tracks, the disc also contains the whole studio recording of Four Seasons Suite plus five shorter studio tracks: the pastoral ‘Soft Wind’; complex yet visceral ‘Down Under Sunlight’; heartfelt ballad ‘Go On 1’; light-hearted ‘Little Flower’; and a sweet closing ‘Thank You’.
To end his endorsement, Steve proclaims, ‘Right now is the time to get to know ade ishs!’
