I dig Kenny and his tunes. 8)
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

Reaper: Awesome, thanks for checking it out!

You are so VERY right about the website stuff.  Yes, indeed.  Fortunately, I don't want to go overboard with effects and etc.  I've actually had a thought or two for the menu for a couple of years now.  It might be pretty cool if I can get it together here.

I definitely agree with you about that stuff.  I actually think of really elaborate DVD menus, with sound loops, video loops, all of that stuff.  Sure, it's cool, but it's annoying too!

Thanks, General Apathy, for not being so generally apathetic as to not post your thoughts in this thread.  I appreciate it!   ;)

No need to use your witty mind tricks on me, Kenny. They don't work. And you are most certainly welcome.

Alrighty, for anyone who's interested, there are now three full songs from the cd playing on http://www.myspace.com/kennyjaworski

[might want to crank up the volume a bit to get the full effect]

2007 Independent Music Awards Nomination

I am pleased to announce that my debut CD, A Piano Saga, has been nominated for Best Live Performance in the album category for the 2007 Independent Music Awards.

http://www.musiciansatlas.com/pages/IMAFinalist/albumfinalist.aspx#20

This international awards program and competition is the biggest of its kind and is open to "any indie label release distributed by either an independant or major label distributor."

The judging panel includes Peter Gabriel [who, incidentally, is the man living today who I would most like to meet], Ozzy Osbourne, Suzanne Vega, Fatboy Slim, Bill Frisell, Wynonna Judd, and McCoy Tyner [jazz piano great who played with Miles Davis].   Ben Folds was a judge one year!

This is quite an honor  - especially considering that the IMAs can recognize pretty much anyone not signed directly to a major label.  All of those indie labels are eligible.  I'm so glad that the CD I recorded on April 14, 2005 in front of an audience of 70 people has gotten some pretty wonderful recognition.

Incidentally:

"This year the IMAs has created an informal "Vox Populi" vote. These results will not affect the Judges' decisions but will add more punch to the marketing & promotional efforts of all the Finalists & their support teams."

So, if you'd like to head on over and rate "The First One" from A Piano Saga, go here:

Truth be told - I'm satisfied with the nomination - I won't pull a George C. Scott and not accept the award if I win, though.  :)
 
Thank you one and all.  God bless you.
 
Kenny

Thanks, GA!  I really am satisfied with the nomination - I don't have to win.  It appears that I'm the first contemporary classical artist to be nominated, and it's for the only album I know of that's a live, undoctored, 'take one' debut album.  That's a pretty good resume in and of itelf.   :)

belated update: I won the 'Vox Populi' of the category, which is the online vote.  So, looks like I'm an IMA winner.  Thanks if you voted!  :)
