My Relationship With The Piano (2012)

In the tradition of Charles Mingus' "Mingus Plays Piano", Kaptain Karl has switched from his primary instrument to the piano to further his creative process. Collaborator Memphis Evans on drums loves 1950s and 1960 jazz albums, the inspiration for the sound of the project. Memphis and Karl have sent in the entire two hours of recordings so people can listen and help them whittle it to a 40 minute album by suggesting favorites.
