Awwww... who can resist kittens? I couldn't and bought the album based on the image. The "soft touch" theme is expressed on vinyl by pianist Ellis Larkin. Here's a link to his wiki page. The tracks are minimalist lounge led by Larkin's deft touch on the keyboard. Sweet stuff... just like kittens!

  1. Ellis Larkins is so much more than just another lounge pianist !
    He is one of the great masters of this instrument
    His recordings are very rare so any additional tracks would be welcome


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
