The Journey Home
Tony Gould & Peter Petrucci.
The Journey Home is
a landmark album in the relationship between friends who are also two of
Australia's finest musicians - pianist Tony
Gould and guitarist Peter Petrucci.
25 years of musical collaboration, this stunning album of largely original
compositions reflects the deep-seated admiration these two artists have for
this, their third duo album, Peter says: "Due to the mutual respect and empathy to the
process of music making and each other, Tony and I have gone on yet another
journey in the pursuit of creating something new and unique for us as
performers and for the listener.
"Instinct plays a big part in capturing the spirit
of spontaneous music-making," adds Peter. "The end result I feel is less
predictable and more personal in that we connect more with the soul of the
this project has special significance for the focus on new original
compositions, a number of which have 'orchestral' accompaniment via keyboard,"
"The combination of piano and guitar has a few precedents, most notably
the duo of the great Bill Evans and Jim Hall," adds Tony. "Both understood the
issues of two 'chorded' instruments playing together, but not getting in each
other's way. The way to do that is not to play unless it is important to the
music; a lesson most of us learn only after having been around a while and
realised that mere notes should never get in the way of good improvised
