Begin At The End
Peter Autschbach Solo
available April 2018!
My new album is called "Begin At The End" and it will be released April 2018 by the renowned label Da Vinci in Osaka, Japan.
"Begin At The End" has many meanings to me: Maybe it's about enjoying the dessert before the main course? Or when outlining the next steps in life, it can map a viable way back to where you are while remaining focused on your distant goal. "Begin At The End" is also a glimmer of hope to hold on to when arriving at the end of life…
In improvisation and composition, the path to a target note is often planned backwards. It is similar in harmonies: chords may make a sudden turn and then gradually return to the original color of tonality.
And the same was true while planning this album, imagining it would already be finished. That made my task of selecting the pieces much easier.
This does not mean starting with the last piece when playing this CD! Don’t do it because then it will limit the pleasure. I wish everyone the joy of listening that I had when recording the music!
Tracks on the CD: Stompin' At The Savoy, Begin At The End, Brazilian Air, Girl Talk, Wave, Suitcase Blues, Summer Breeze, In A Sentimental Mood, Not A Sad Blues, Over The Rainbow
