Some may remember pianist Greg Slawson from the band Kassaba he and his wife (and fellow Cleveland Institute of Music grad) Candice Lee led from 2002 through 2008. Playing a distinctive blend of jazz, classical and world music, the quartet released two CDs, Zones and Dark Eye.

Slawson and Lee have moved on to new endeavors, including a website that’s intended to encourage people to explore their creativity.

They are producing videos that blend their music with nature imagery and managing Slawson and Lee Piano Studio (Slawson also teaches at the College of Wooster).

Slawson recently released a solo album called Waterflow. As the name suggests, the music is new-age-style mood music that incorporates the sound of waves, a bubbling waterfall and a thunderstorm.

It’s described on the website as “perfect for periods of relaxation, meditation, a therapeutic massage or a yoga routine.” It features three extended compositions, ranging from 17-and-a-half to almost 30 minutes: “Lakeshore,” “Summer Rain” and “Sulphur Spring Falls.”

You can buy the CD at CD Baby or locally at the Whole Foods store on Cedar Road in University Heights. —Anastasia Pantsios
