“NIGHT AND DAY” is a beautiful Great American Songbook standard by Cole Porter. My personal arrangement can be heard on the CD “MUSIC TO DRIVE BY”.  Many years ago a private country club on Long Island asked me to perform one Thursday night playing the music of Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rogers and Hart etc. I was held over every Thursday night for 10 years.

Hope you enjoy the below rendition –  available at www.music-you-will-love.com   and Amazon.com

“Not only is he a terrific pianist, but his choice of material is absolutely first rate- some truly great songs, very well played”

PETER DUCHIN

“You’re clearly a talented guy”

JOE FAY – WNEW Metromedia Radio

“PIANIST STAN WIEST ADDS ‘RECORDING ARTIST’ TO HIS LONG MUSICAL RESUME”

LONG ISLAND NEWSDAY

Dick Robinson, host of WHLI/1100 AM’s “American Standards by the Sea,” is also impressed by Wiest’s piano stylings. “His album is a nice reflection of the American Songbook,” he says. “I love that a song like ‘Night and Day’ is just piano. No trio, no big band, no singer. Stan does a wonderful job.”

DICK ROBINSON WHLI “AMERICAN STANDARDS BY THE SEA”

“It is as beautiful of piano playing as one would ever want to hear. It’s absolutely delicious. It’s gorgeous.  Wonderful renditions of these songs. Each and every one a classic song. And you do a beautiful job, a masterful job on them. I want to compliment you on absolutely marvelous piano playing. A great great keepsake album. It  simply could not have been better. It really is a group of brilliantly played selections. It’s as good as it gets. And you have every right to be proud of it.”

PAUL RICHARDS

PROGRAM DIRECTOR WHLI

Piano virtuoso Stan Wiest offers “Music You Will Love –Volume One:  Music To Drive By” – draws from the Great American Songbook and beyond; Wiest’s wonderful technique and flair for interpretation are front-and-center. A generous 17 tracks of solo piano and it lives up to its title.”

THE TIMES UNION

“Stan Wiest has the perfect touch for the American Songbook. You can recognize the melody because he cares about the composers. A delightful CD, one you’ll listen to many times.”

John Bohannon   WRHU

This CD is a standout for its beautiful arrangements of beautiful music. For anyone who likes American “standards,”

this is a great pick.AMAZON.COM  5 STAR REVUE

“Move over Clayderman…there’s a new kid  at the 88’s who not only tickles the ivories, but gives us 17 tracks of pure AMERICAN SONGBOOK pleasure. That “new kid” is Stan Wiest, a  piano wizard. Stan’s “MUSIC TO DRIVE BY” is  “pure piano”. My radio show audience love’s Stan!

I can’t wait for Volume 2″

“All The Things You Are” is my favorite song on my CD “MUSIC TO DRIVE BY”  http://www.music-you-will-love.com

I had the honor of playing this song with Victor Borge as a duet many years ago and I tell the story of the performance in my concert program and presentations It is the first song on the CD which is also available at Amazon.com and CDBaby.com

During the concerts and presentation I tell many humorous anecdotes of my performances with and for celebrities. At the time

they seemed very traumatic but now looking back they make for wonderful stories. I hope you enjoy listening to the CD as much as I enjoyed recording it. These are my personal and emotional arrangements of music of the Great American Songbook. I will be in concert at the Glove Theater in Gloversville New York on Sunday November 2, 2014 at 2 PM . I will also be at the Locust Valley Library , Locust Valley New York on Sunday December 7 at 2 PM for the annual holiday music sing along.
If you go to the website  http://www.music-you-will-love.com there is a video of me playing Eddy Duchin’s piano which I own. Hope you enjoy the music.
