Once again Bill Carrothers shows himself to be a musician with a sense for the subtle. His compositions take unorthodox twists and turns. There are surprises in the pages of this musical family album, and a pervading atmosphere of private tenderness. These are gripping pieces for piano that act as musical embraces and, as in some wonderfully muted movie, capture so many magical moments. "Family Life" is a work of art - with Bill Carrothers' signature on it.

PRESS QUOTES
"This is an excellent album, done by a master artist..." (Ric Bang, Jazz Scan)

"Carrothers has released several top notch CDs on Pirouet Records... With Family Life, he has created his most intimate and personal work for the label." (Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz)

"Deeply romantic with contemporary immediacy, Carrothers captures his intimate family life in 15 short sketches, seemingly traversing the territory of Charles Ives, Copland, Gershwin, Monk and Gil Evans." (Michael Bailey, All About Jazz)

"This album is essentially an autobiography for the ears, and an excellent one at that. Carrothers filters his very being through his fingers on the brilliant, personalized piano statement of Family Life." (Dan Bilasky, All About Jazz)
