Few audio projects are as enjoyable as the minimalism and beauty of a jazz piano recording. In early 2015, Tone Tree Audio, LLC had the opportunity to work with a professional Nebraska musician of over 40+ years of piano and music education experience to record, mix and master an upcoming CD for First Presbyterian Church, produced by Ansley Productions.
William Reichert of Broken Bow, Nebraska simply embodies the essence of jazz, with decades of performance and teaching background. Reichert expertly performed over 20 selections of jazz, gospel and holiday pieces for the upcoming First Presbyterian Church album 'Mission' CD release, including 'Morning Has Broken', 'Amazing Grace', 'The First Noel', and 'Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen'.
Listen to a song from the 'Mission' CD below! Tone Tree Audio thanks Reichert and Ansley Productions for the amazing opportunity!
