Jack Brent has been a devoted performer of the songs of George Gershwin since high school. Receiving a book of Gershwin arrangements led to his love of the style and finesse of Gershwin the pianist and a life long commitment to perform the songs of Gershwin whenever and wherever possible. His pianistic arrangements of Gershwin songs have led him to perform the George Gershwin Songbook from Boston, New York, and Washington, to the QE2, Paris and Cannes. A student of pianist extraordinaire, Dorothea Freitag, a pupil of Nadia Boulanger. Jack has devoted his life to the field of education as a teacher and to the field of music as a performer. With the accomplishment of this first CD devoted to Gershwin, a second volume is in the works to continue to draw attention to the lesser known songs of George Gershwin. This focus of Walden II Records is in keeping with the tradition of Walden Records, founded by Edward Jablonski under the patronage of Ira Gershwin. Walden II Records will continue to draw attention to rare and lesser known works by other composers in future releases.
SEPTEMBER 6th– JIM PALANA — Jim Palana has been a vibrant folk music community in southeastern New England during the 60′s and 70′s. He has performed on stages in the United States and Europe and may well be on of the few American musicians to ever ply his trade on a German trolley car. He continues to play his own songs and also pay tribute to the songwriters who influenced him in his youth, such as Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Gordon Lightfoot, Tim Hardin, Fred Neil, Paul Seibel and Jerry Jeff Walker. A Jim Palana song usually tells a story in a simple, understated way, often with a touch of wry humor.
