WHAT IF I

cd-t

Jazz pianist Andréa Petrity's second album What If I showcases her talent as composer and arranger featuring her original compositions.

"I wanted to write melodies that sing, songs that tell stories" says Andréa.

This jazz piano trio album speaks of various styles, tempos and feels as the musical tales unfold and are expressed through Andréa and her trio members drummer Robin Tufts and bassist Stefano Valdo.

"I like to connect with my audiences at my live performances. I enjoy sharing stories; happy and sad. We all have a lot in common".

Eight of the nine tracks on What If I are written by Andréa. Track 2 is a well recognized tune, covered by many artists, written by Peretti / Creatore / Weiss and arranged on this album by Andréa.

"The music, inspiration and love comes from a higher place and I hope to always connect to that spirit. My Wish is for you to enjoy". A. Petrity
