Piano Music

    Originally released posthumously on Zopf Records in 1998, this newly re-mastered and re-packaged edition of Piano Music is re-released in April 2011 to coincide with the re-releases of both Concert Program and Union Cafe on the new Penguin Cafe Label.
    'Most of the pieces on this album are previously unreleased material found on Simon's tapes after his death in December 1997. Exceptions are 'Piano Music', which appeared on the Preludes Airs and Yodels compilation, and 'Kora Kora' and 'Silver Star', which were on the Union Cafe album. 'Lullaby' is a new piece completed by Simon but recorded after his death by friends and members of Penguin Cafe Orchestra.
    The other fourteen pieces were played and recorded by Simon at various times and places (some unknown). 'Shelter' and 'Cajun Piano' are sketches of pieces Simon planned to record for his next album, which would have also incuded 'Lullaby'.
