Could it have been any rainier that Saturday? Excellent, a rainy day is a good day to go to a record store. ANY day is a good day to go to a record store, but that day is one that I'll never ever forget.
Ian Axel performed a short set of inspired music, live at Vintage Vinyl with Chad Vaccarino. Five songs later, of which Chad joined in for two, I knew that they were exceptional musicians. I knew it to be true. Ian is his piano. As he performs, the music emanating from that piano is rich and vibrant and awesome!!
I talked to Ian briefly after the show and he told me he has been playing the piano since he began to walk. Music is a communicative art, and Ian communicates with that piano exponentially. Ian also told me that he and Chad write the songs together, which is a true collaborative effort, worthy of praise!!
This Is The New Year, Ian and Chad's new CD is available now!!
