About Piano Cinema Piano Cinema
is the second solo piano release for Harold O'Neal. He says it is his statement of a signature piano style that he calls by the same name. Piano Cinema
was released on May 14, 2018 (Omomuki Foundation).
'Piano Cinema' is how I describe my genre of music. It's equally a balance of improvisations and well thought-out compositions. Some pieces were composed and constantly reworked. While others, like 'The Magic Hour', were completely improvised. My goal is to share this vision with the world."
Harold O'Neal, a pianist, composer, actor, dancer, and speaker, hails from Kansas City, Mo. via Arusha, Tanzania. His last solo piano album, Marvelous Fantasy
, marked a revival of what would seem to be a long-lost tradition of solo piano compositions, all while paving the way for his own style and sound.
