about

In the summer of 1974 I was sharing a big old house on Howth Head, County Dublin, called The Needles.
In one of the rooms was a grand piano and if you sat at it you could see a magnificent view of the expanse of Dublin Bay out the window.
This is where I composed Baby Grand.
At least most of it. I always revise and went back to it and scored it in a version for 4 hands a few months later (2 players sitting side by side at one piano). I was entertained by how a 7/8 seemed to go out of sync against a 7/4, but didn't.
I went into a recording studio in 1978, recording the various parts at two speeds, giving some of it a honky tonk feel.
Baby Grand has also been included on the Thalia/Oizzo No album:
