What are raw, scorched and untethered? Hot beets. Press Esc and zen to the Romain domain.

About the Album

"Raw, Scorched And Untethered" is a track off pianist Romain Collin's newest CD, "Press Enter," his third album as a leader. "Press Enter" is Collin’s second album recorded by his incredibly gifted trio with bassist Luques Curtis and drummer Kendrick Scott, following their acclaimed 2013 release "The Calling." "Press Enter" draws inspiration from the visual world, minimalism, folk music, and the wisdom of Wayne Shorter. Such was the case when the legendary saxophonist shared a succinct but profound nugget of wisdom with pianist Romain Collin. Musing on people who spend their whole lives talking about plans, ideas, or dreams without ever seeming to take action, Shorter fell briefly silent before bursting out with an urgent commandment: “Press enter!”
