Improvation
  • Released: October 30, 2014
  • 17 track(s)

​The first solo piano album by Roger Evernden features his most popular composition - Late At Night I Think Of You, as well as the time-honoured favourites When Rene Called, Secret Exhibitionists, and Daughter Of The Skies.Improvation is an album of relaxing and inspiring piano music.

“With hints of classical and jazz influences, each piece combines distinctive melodies with strong structures to create an uplifting and deeply moving experience. These powerful melodies are typical of the evocative themes in Roger Evernden’s solo piano work. The beautiful & peaceful compositions are both inspiring & relaxing.”

Ambient and gentle piano that is excellent for focus and study; peace, space, simplicity, and grace; relaxing and meditation.

These solo piano compositions have been compared to the colourful & rich compositions of Ludovico Einaudi on his best selling albums, such as “I Giorni” (The Days), to the more gentle jazz improvisations of Keith Jarrett, and to the beautiful & evocative New Age compositions of Chris Spheeris.

If you like piano works by Brian Crain, David Lanz, The Piano Guys, Michael Nyman, Philip Wesley, Kevin Kern, Chilly Gonzales, or John Medeski, then you will enjoy Improvation.

This album has been a long time coming - the earliest track was written in 1991! I would like to thank my fantastic wife Elaine, who has supported and encouraged me in my writing and playing; without her this album would never have been produced. I also have her to thank for her wonderful artworks - in particular the illustration of me playing the piano that is the cover for Improvation.

Thank you to Dan for creating the cover graphic from Elaine’s illustration. And thank you to all my friends and family - many of whom have been the inspiration for my compositions.
