Amazon Review of The Bowie Variations
John C. Bowerman “pop culture fan” has posted the first Amazon review of “The Bowie Variations.”
“…who better than he to present an album of piano compositions inspired by the works of Mr. Bowie? The answer, obviously, is no one. This CD is an 11-song sonic expedition through Bowie’s catalog that only Garson could lead. Each track is sprinkled with recognizable melodies from the original songs (some more obvious than others). For those who enjoy solo piano recordings…this is an interesting and relaxing listen – a very subtle way to get a Bowie fix.”
The Bowie Variations
“Whatever Mike lends his hands to invariably becomes something magical.”–David Bowie.
Beginning in 1972, super-versatile pianist Mike Garson performed, toured internationally and recorded with one of the most creative figures in popular music, David Bowie.
Having played the Bowie songbook in concert countless times, Garson always had the ambition to record his own original variations on these well-known themes. This is the year it came to fruition!
