I grew up playing the music of David Lanz. I have many fond memories of playing stuff out of the book with his gigantic face on the cover.

That particular collection contains a trilogy of songs that form what is apparently called Skyline Firedance Suite, which sounds pretty rad. This week I brushed up on my New Age piano playing skills and recorded myself performing them. As usual, I played them all too fast, but what's the point of playing stuff if you don't play everything too fast?

Also, sorry about the feet in the first one. I thought it was a weird angle for looking at bare feet so I put on some shoes in the subsequent recording sessions.
