I dated a girl in high school who asked me "Have you heard of Yanni ? " I said no. "You need to check him out, you will like him". She was right, as women usually are.
Once I got my hands on a video tape of 'Yanni Live at the Acropolis', I was GLUED to the TV... EVERYDAY. I literally watched that concert EVERYDAY. I mean I milked that tape to the core.
I think since that day I have heard that album more than 10,000 times... and thats an understatement. As a piano player from a young age myself, That one concert was the fire that ignited my soul and I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I have 3 instrumental albums under my belt and Always dreamed of doing a rendition of Yanni's tunes. So here is my homage to the man who inspired a billion people on this planet. My simple tribute to none other ... but Yanni.
