“Pianist/composer Louis Colaiannia has recorded a tender and touching composition that pays heartfelt tribute to an unspeakably tragic event.

If many of his colleagues in the black and white keys of music helps create an intimate, trusting environment , it takes a swing and expression , although his compositions are ideal for creating a cozy , warm and romantic atmosphere.
