Hello there! My name is Jeremy Hatch and I am a pianist, composer and piano teacher living in Portland, Oregon.

While I'm classically trained, I've also been improvising at the piano for almost my entire life. Way back when I started playing out 25 years ago, Chick Corea's two "Piano Improvisations" albums and Keith Jarrett's "Koln Concert" were among my favorite records, and I've always wanted to record a series of improvisations in homage to those works. That's the idea behind this project.

Each of these improvisations is completely spontaneous -- there is no planning or pre-composing apart from choosing the key by a roll of the 12-sided die I have for exactly this purpose. The only thing I bring to the piano, apart from that, is an idea of a mood or a texture I want to evoke, and then I start playing, following the ideas where they take me. Not every improvisation makes the cut for release -- only the best ones, three or so each month. Out of those, about half will make it onto the albums I plan to release twice a year.

My intro video here is a recent improvisation, and it's representative of what I've been making and will be making in the months ahead: atmospheric and melodic piano music. I release no fewer than three each month. Patrons receive a secret podcast link for listening on their favorite devices and exclusive access to downloads of the music, as well as free downloads of any albums I make from these.

Thank you so much for checking out what I'm doing here on Patreon. I look forward to playing for you!
