John Von Ohlen, legendary drummer made famous by Stan Kenton has put together a collection of sound ideas for piano. This collection of compositions and arrangements were written by John as compositional exercises. 

After hearing these unique and beautiful pieces, Kim Pensyl got John in the studio and recorded him performing this collection of works. The result is reminiscent of the great impressionists and a joy to listen to. 

We asked Josh Moore to design the cover art and a V.O. tee shirt featuring the famous cracked cymbal and will post images for both as the work is finalized.

This Kickstarter will fund the studio and production costs associated with CD production. Any money raised beyond our production cost will go to John for his work.

 Please help us fund this project and document these wonderful works by John Von Ohlen. 

Risks and challenges

There is very little risk involved here. If we reach our goal we will be able to produce this CD. If we do not, then it will not be produced. Because of this, those of us working with John to facilitate this work have decided to run this as an all or nothing campaign.
