The Masters' Apprentice
Solos by jazz pianos legends enjoy new life on pianist Barron Ryan's second album. Seeking to learn from some of the world's greatest artists, Ryan listened to eleven of their recorded improvisations, meticulously transcribed the recordings as sheet music, and learned to perform them. Through rejection, toil, and injury, Barron Ryan has become The Masters' Apprentice.
