'The Piano Man' CD

£12.00 (free worldwide shipping)

"The Piano Man" showcases Kyle's wide variety of musical styles. 

The opening 'Hadacol Boogie' features red hot boogie-woogie piano at its finest. 

 

The album takes on a journey of rollin' New Orleans style piano on 'High Blood Pressure', the old standards get Kyle's unique touch, such as 'More Than You Know', and a beautiful instrumental version of 'Deep Purple'. 

 

'Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On' is arguably the best solo version recorded of this archetype rock n roll classic. 

 

'I Shot The Sheriff' gets a very unique interpretation, and is recorded as an instrumental. 

 

'The Piano Man' album features 3 classical numbers. The instrumental 'For The Piano' was the idea of pianist Mac Frampton, to mix in classical with modern pop, Bachs 'Minuet In G' blends seamlessly interwoven with Billy Joels 'Piano Man'.

 

'Allegro' (First Movement From Sonata in G) was the first classical piece Kyle learnt, as a necessity if he was to continue using the music departments pianos at Forfar Academy! However, this recording is Kyle's unique version of it. A jazzed up version of a Haydn composition, which also features a few blasts of rockin' boogie during the number, while keeping the melody intact. 

 

'Turkish March' (Rondo alla turca), the Mozart classic, was recorded live in California. Kyle sticks to the original score (with a few embellishments) until towards the end where he couldn't resist rocking it up a bit with some blisteringly fast 8 to the bar boogie left hand. (and listen to the audiences reaction!)

 

The CD closes with a bonus track called 'Melodiano Melody', an original Kyle Esplin composition. What differs from the rest of this album, this track features Kyle on piano, but also adding a 2nd track overdub, playing the lead on Melodica. The result is a very unique bluesy number which perfectly wraps up this solo album showcasing the many musical styles of Kyle.

'The Future's Not What It Used To Be'

£12.00 (free worldwide shipping)

Display more >>


"The Future's Not What It Used To Be" was produced and perform entirely by Kyle, along with Stuart McLaren on drums.

On this album Kyle plays piano, guitar, bass guitar, keyboards and vocals. 

From the opening Mickey Newbury penned song 'The Futures Not What It Used To Be', until the closing 'It Sure Was (Love)' written by Kris Kristofferson, this album is a lyrical and musical journey. 

It features an original composition by Kyle, 'Jet Lag Blues', a piece that came about after Kyle travelled for 2 days from South America to his home studio in Scotland. 

Next up is a Warren Zevon song 'Don't Let Us Get Sick'. Almost a prayer for the road of life, as the chorus goes:

 

"Don't let us get sick, don't let us get old, don't let us get stupid, alright?

Just make us be brave, make us play nice, and let us be together tonight."

 

What more could you ask for?

 

'House Of Blue Lights' is a real boogie woogie treat. 

 

'Kiss The World Goodbye' (a not often heard Kris Kristofferson song)

 

'Mean Cheatin' Woman' is a New Orleans rollin' groove that has Kyle playing on the Rhodes electric piano, featuring long extended solos. 

 

'Just Dropped In' (To See What Condition My Condition Was In) also has Kyle playing a Rhodes electric piano, with a suitable psychedelic production to add the finishing touches to this Mickey Newbury classic. 

 

'I Remember The Good' and 'Sweet Memories', 2 more Mickey Newbury ballads, rich, deep songs with appropriate orchestration.

 

'It Sure Was (Love)' A Kris Kristofferson song that has been given Kyle's unique touch. A rollin' funky piano part illustrates the song creating an underlying groove while the story goes on….
