Theme and Variations
Like to get a copy of Pete's solo piano recording "Theme and Variations" on Reservoir Music? It's been called "surprisingly revelatory" in All About Jazz, where reviewer George Kanzler said, "Malinverni's approach to jazz piano is refreshingly singular". Chip Stern hailed Pete and 'Theme and Variations' this way, "a jazz pianist whose range of articulation, sense of clarity and concision, rhythmic exuberance and harmonic depth make for one of the finest solo piano recitals in my sonic menagerie." To get a signed copy, just send a check for $20 to cover the disc and handling to Malinverni Music, 241 Ave of the Americas, #1-C, NYC NY 10014
