2018 / Hen House Records
Review by Kathy Parsons
“Tribute” is a gorgeous and very heartfelt solo piano single by Greg Maroney that is dedicated to a close friend who passed away suddenly at the age of 52, leaving behind a wife and two children. This friend was also a generous supporter of Greg’s music, so it is especially fitting that a special piece has been composed in his honor. I like Maroney’s own description of the piece: “The song is not particularly mournful, rather more celebratory for his productive life, and sad that he left this earth.”
Greg Maroney’s recent music has been a combination of composed music and improvisations, and this piece is one that he composed. As he said, “Tribute” is not mournful, but it does express loss and sadness as well as an appreciation for a friend who left this life too soon. “Tribute” is available from Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby. There is a YouTube video and sheet music for this piece will also be available soon. Very highly recommended!
