Rhythms of Green and Gold

John Martin (piano)

Australian pianist John Martin presents an entertaining range of music from 10 Australian composers.

Many of the compositions are inspired by ragtime, blues and jazz, but very melodic. There are three Australian waltzes by Ross Edwards. May Howlett's The Baroque Rag blends Bach and ragtime. Ann Carr-Boyd wrote The Solitary Rag at the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdowns. John Martin plays his own The Everglades at Dawn, inspired by the National Trust gardens in the Blue Mountains. There are 19 short pieces altogether.

Although this CD is entirely solo piano, John is known to many as an accompanist for performers such as Jane Rutter: “We {Peter Cousens and Jane Rutter} have enjoyed touring with Australian pianist John Martin, whose lovely playing, erudition and elegant manners delighted us and audiences.”
