Liner Notes: On this CD are eight of my favorite original piano pieces. “Early Morning Sunrise”, “Blue Sky Afternoon” and “Evening Sunset” were composed at Indian Lake Nazarene Campground. They were written in memory of Dr. Neil Strait. “Memoirs of an Island” was written after returning from my honeymoon. “Prelude in C-Sharp Minor” was written as a music history class project while I was a student at Spring Arbor University. “In the Garden” actually started out as a simple piano piece that I wrote when I was in Junior High School. Over the years I have shaped it musically and chordally. It has reached its final version on this album. “From the Heart” was written at 3 A.M. on a keyboard in my family room. Although it is not purely a piano solo, the multiple melodies make it a very interesting piece of music. The hidden track (#8) is the title song of my musical entitled, “Family.” (family-the-musical.com) To learn more about Dr. Murphy’s recordings and arrangements, please go to jsmarecordings.com ©Copyright 2008 jsmarecordings All Rights Reserved
