New PianoSoft: A Tribute to Michael Jackson

While the man may be gone, his music lives on, and now you can experience everything from "I Want You Back" to "Man In the Mirror" on your Disklavier or Yamaha keyboard.

Just released today, the new PianoSoft Solo album, "Never Can Say Goodbye" - Tribute to Michael Jackson, features 12 Jackson classics. Pianist Joel Plimmer does an admirable job of interpreting Jackson's songs for solo piano, channeling the soulfulness of ballads like "I'll Be There" and "Never Can Say Goodbye" while also hitting the right groove on "Billie Jean" and "Rock With You". Overall, his performances add an elegance to Michael's songs that comes only from reverent, faithful solo piano arrangements. Here's one sample track, click for more samples.
