about

Recorded in 1984, Piano Demos - Unfinished contains the remaining piano tunes from the tape that generated Thank You For The Favor. Each track has notes from Denis about the concept for the tune, all of which he considers to be a work in progress just waiting to be finished by some clever person. Denis devoted himself to learning piano just to create these demos, and rarely touched a piano before or since. Guitar was always his mainstay, in particular the bass. However, his personality shines through, no matter his medium. Enjoy his quirky attitude, reflected clearly in these fragmented sketches.
