We're choosing pianist and composer Keiko Matsui's song "Moon Over Gotham" from her upcoming new album Echo as our THURSDAY TRACK PICK this week.
"When I began composing for 'Moon Over Gotham,' I was hearing motifs with shuffle in my head that reminded me of New York," Matsui tells Keyboard. "Every year I visit Gotham City to perform and the city has a certain energy. However, last October I spent few days in the city recording and shooting my new album cover and I had this special moment. One night, during the shoot in the silence of the night, the moon was looking at us. This beautiful image was painted in my mind."
Echo is out February 22, 2019 on Shanachie Entertainment and features guest appearances by Gretchen Parlato, Marcus Miller, Kirk Whalum, Robben Ford and Kyle Eastwood.
