The composer/pianist in one of his rare solo performance playing new pieces and work from his Lovely Music CD Take Your Time.

“Tyranny has one of the most original styles in the modern classical world…the only pianist I can think of who rivals Cecil Taylor and Keith Jarrett in a single phrase.”-Tucson Citizen.

“The way he plays is so complex and majestic; it’s like watching a huge ocean liner pull out.”-Laurie Anderson.

Archivist note: Tyranny introduces each piece with remarkable insights and this has been preserved in the restored recording.
