SOLO PIANO GROUP

Assembled by producer Atron Gregory, SOLO PIANO GROUP presents a series of relaxing recordings by world renowned pianists and composers. Gregory himself has an extensive resume as both an artist manager, tour manager and executive producer of Grammy nominated records. His credits include a diverse array of artists such as Tupac Shakur, Stanley Clarke, N.W.A., Rodney Franklin, Digital Underground and World Class Wreckin Cru.

Gregory's TNT Recordings, responsible for helping to launch the careers of Tupac Shakur and Digital Underground, expands its repertoire with the SOLO PIANO GROUP. "We recognized a lack of diversity in mood music," Gregory explains. "We hope these recordings, and recordings like these, will help provide music for relaxation that will appeal to all."

The first set of releases from SOLO PIANO GROUP feature pianists Glen Pearson, Derek McKinney and Janice Maxi-Reid.
