Gary Smart composes and improvises music that reflects his interest in Americana.

A unique musician, composer-pianist Gary Smart composes and improvises a music that reflects an abiding interest in Americana, world musics and jazz, as well as the Western classical tradition. He is a professor of music at the University of North Florida. This recording is unedited abstract improvisations. Though the collection is unified stylistically, it features considerable conceptual variety. Some of the improvisations stress gestural and textural material, while others emphasize motor rhythms and still others are harmonically inspired. Two pieces are for piano and radio improvisations with "found sound materials" on the radio.
