Prog keyboard legend and much loved Grumpy Old Man Rick Wakeman has gone back to his roots for a new album of cover versions. Piano Portraits is a journey through Rick’s musical past – beautiful solo piano interpretations of some of the favourite timeless classics he learned as a young pianist growing up.
Apart from the seminal part he played in the emergence of Yes as one of the biggest prog rock bands in the world, he played keyboards on David Bowie’s breakthrough Hunky Dory album, and it is his solo piano version of Life On Mars that was the catalyst for this album, having played it on a tribute concert to Bowie after his death.
The design is by Mark Higenbottam at Stylorouge and photographs of Rick are by Rob O’Connor.
