âA fresh look at timeless Billy Joel classics with new songs from piano men Matthew Friedman and Kyle Martin"

It all started innocently enough... Sitting around lunch one day in Atlantic City, NJ while in rehearsals for the national tour of Billy Joel and Twyla Tharpeâs Broadway show, Movinâ Out, the subject of recording a CD of Billyâs material came up. âSure, sounds like fun,â and âYeah, thatâd be great, letâs do itâ as well as âNo problem, Iâve got the rig to record it - Iâd love to produce itâ were all things that were said. (That last part was me and my big mouth...) Well, fast forward 10 months and a LOT of miles, diners, truck stops, bad hotels, 280+ shows (and counting) and give or take 300,000 people and what you are (hopefully) listening to as you read this is the result of a true labor of love - and maybe, more than just a little insanity... This project was conceived, produced, recorded and mixed on trains, planes, in cars, on a tour bus, in theaters (NOT the movie kind...), cafés, coffee shops, bars, restaurants and a veritable multitude of hotel rooms across the US and Canada.

Iâm sure we annoyed, perplexed and disturbed more hotel staff and guests than you could imagine recording and mixing these tracks at all hours of the morning, afternoon and night. We thank our unwitting (unwilling?) hotel neighbors for not killing us, or worse...

We were remarkably blessed with an amazing group of guys in the tour band, some truly talented and wonderful people we met along the way, and the time, resources and mental instability to make this happen. We sincerely hope you have as much fun listening to these tracks as we did creating them.
