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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
