Fiona's Comments

For the delirious okay-ness of life, with its many tints of blue and gold. Superior fluidity, charming expression and just above the din euphoria.

About the Album

"Fifth Movement" is a track from pianist/composer Kenny Werner's solo album "The Space." The album's eight pieces consist of two memorable standards, a classic Keith Jarrett composition, two perceptive pieces by Seizer, and three Werner originals, including the spare, mysterious title piece. In Werner's hands they are transformed into intimate poems of self-discovery. Werner characterizes "The Space" as "the place where every note I play is the most beautiful sound I've ever heard." With his new album, Kenny Werner makes that space his home. "The Space" gets its title from a chapter in "Effortless Mastery," Werner's book dealing with creativity and his approach to playing that has influenced a generation of jazz players. Werner calls The Space "the most important title I've ever had for my music." It's about "being in the moment, content with what is." It's the pianist's fourth album for Pirouet.
