Mark Christopher Brandt

This Side of Forever


Mark Christopher Brandt, acoustic piano

This Side of Forever  Released January 1, 2012

This Side of Forever marked the return to the artistic arena for Mark Christopher Brandt after an eight-year hiatus from performing and recording. Although it was released after Worth the Wait (2010), it was recorded during the same year but held back from release to allow the trio recording to grow legs.  This Side of Forever brings both the old and the new with it.  It is a double CD release containing the tracks from his 1999 solo piano recording Contemplation, as well as a disc of newly created solo piano pieces.


This Side of Forever was recorded in one session and all of the pieces are unedited first takes. The same is true for Contemplation, recorded eight years earlier.
