GET MIDI "Occident Express" LISTEN


Performer:John Roache
Composer: Robin Frost
Arranged by:John Roache

A unique "piano novelty" piece by Robin Frost. The Occident Express? This is the train that runs in the opposite direction! As ragtime historian/musicologist Ed Berlin states - "His music takes us down what might at first seem like familiar paths, but then sidesteps the expected with delightfully unanticipated twists." "[His music is] a treat of foot-tapping polyrhythms, surprise modulations, ear-tickling melodic patterns, and harmonies that appear suddenly from left field, satisfying as much as they startle. This is fun music."
