Just Him - Just Me by Dave Cornwall
About Just Him - Just Me...
"Acknowledgement of a shared Christian heritage remains as historically essential to all as it does spiritually essential to the true believer. Pianist Dave Cornwall’s Just Him…Just Me is his celebration of such through his performance of ten staples of the Protestant Hymnal. Cornwall infuses his performances of “Jesus Loves Me,” Come By Here My Lord,” and “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” with a relaxed a reverent pathos that never devolves in to pious cliche. The piano is captured closely, both high a low registers captured equally. The result is a certain grandeur drawn from the solid footing of “Rock of Ages” or the finest spiritual played, “Precious Lord, Take My Hand.” Even the most reticent New Age fan will find much to appreciate here. There is something so completely American here…in the very best sense."

The Dave Cornwall Story...
In a very small New England church, the organist ends her final hymn. The clamor of the socializing begins as families and seniors begin making their way to relatives, friends, and warm, familiar conversation.
As the peacefulness of the day almost subsides completely, an anxious spark within two very small brothers sends them straight away to the church's spinet piano where the friendly noises all around provide them with more than adequate "cover" for their somewhat theatrical re-creations of Mrs. Butler's powerful, gospel-influenced stylings. Most of the people didn't complain too much, but boy, did we have a great time!
Years later, I would add on to my treasured early "experience," studying both technique and performance with Professor Emeritus Henry Santos, a renowned educator, concert pianist, composer, and historian. Jazz theory and arranging would be learned from distinguished faculty at the New England Conservatory of Music, and later, by continuous, on-going exploration and self instruction.
Today, the days of early fun with the piano have returned...not only through performance, but also, recording. Have a look at my growing list of albums. While my audiences have grown, one thing has and never will change....it's all about what people want to hear...what will invigorate and renew....and what they might connect to so very much that they will want to hear it played again, and again.
