The Soul Flowers
The Soul Flowers – a piano improvisatie album by Vincent Boot
The whole idea of creating a piano improvisations album started a few years ago. I wanted to go back to where it all started for me: just improvise on some basic chords and play the notes which come up in my mind on that perticular moment.
I am already giving piano concerts for more then 10 years now by doing piano improvisations on famous covers. And i always got so much positive feedback about my piano improvisation talents… so “The Soul Flowers” concept was born: piano melodies – straight from the heart.
For this album I was influenced by Prince, my all time favourite musician who passed in 2016. He was great in improvisation on all different kind of musical instruments and i was honoured to be on some of his exclusive aftershow concerts back in the days. The last concert tour he gave was “The piano & a Microphone” tour: beautiful improvisations of his own work.
So I imagined these amazing memories & atmosphere when I recorded the piano pieces for “The Soul Flowers” and the melodies start flowing easily through my mind. I recorded some long, late nite piano sessions and now you can hear the result on the album.
Some of the tracks like the title song “The Soul Flowers” I had to edit to make it fit on the album concept, because the original version is more then 10 minutes long, like some other tracks on the album which were even longer.
This time i did it all by myself: from recording the piano tracks to creating the artwork for the album and my friend Konstantin Karpitsky (heart & soul of “Eternal Love”) helped me with some nice mastering work. I’m happy to say that we are working on an amazing new, Chillout piano Lounge project together at the moment. More info about that in the near future!
