Cue, the fourth CD from Los Angeles based pianist Ken Elkinson returns him to his classical roots. “As a child, I studied classical piano for over ten years, even competing on the junior circuit. I drew from my experiences with this amazing body of work.”

Cue also marks Ken’s first foray into a vocal track. Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Tom Freund lends vocals to his 1998 masterpiece “Beautiful Sadness,” with Ken on piano. Ken transcribed the original guitar part to piano and the results are no less than stunning

Perfect for massage, yoga, getting a baby to sleep or just a quiet dinner at home, Cue delivers a relaxing blend of contemplative solo piano.

Bill Binkelman from New Age Reporter states, “This is Ken Elkinson’s fourth CD, and like previous releases, it reveals his considerable talent as well as the subtle way he composes solo piano music which is both immediately accessible yet not so pedestrian so as to be lost in a crowd.”

Kathy Parsons of Solo Piano Publications adds, “Fans of Ken Elkinson’s earlier albums will be overjoyed with Cue and it should bring him plenty of new fans as well.”

Influenced and inspired from classical heavyweights Debussy and Chopin to modern day masters George Winston and Keith Jarrett, the upbeat Cue is well suited for a wide variety of listeners.
