St. Paul jazz pianist Larry McDonough
released his first CD of solo piano
jazz, titled "Small Steps," on the Marx
Music label. The original CD release
party filled Dakota at Bandana Square
in St. Paul, Minnesota with up to an
hour wait to get in. A second party,
family show and jazz education
session in February at filled Dakota
with adults and children.
In "Small Steps," McDonough performs unique arrangements of jazz classics (Miles Davis' "All Blues", Chick Corea's "Crystal Silence," and "Nature Boy", first performed by Nat King Cole and later George Benson), pop classics ("Linus and Lucy", Eric Clapton's "Layla", and The Beatles' "Good Day Sunshine"), as well as original pieces "Small Steps" and "Coreatown."
