Sweet, poignant piano songs inspired by the 1912 girl named Matilda.
"Simple yet wonderful sonic experiences that remind us of how timeless music can be... gentle yet emotionally filling." -Dick Metcalf, Improvijazzation Nation
An album with deep emotional roots for Rick Sparks is his 2016 release, "Matilda's Flowers."
"Matilda was my grandmother," says Rick. "While I only knew her in her golden years, Matilda's faded 1912 engagement picture as an 18-year-old created a whole new personality for her that inspired me to record 'Matilda's Flowers.'"
"Matilda's Flowers" is an album of sweet, poignant songs featuring 7 piano originals plus a lovely arrangement of Sting's "Fields of Gold" & two timeless hymns. According to Rick, "I intend for these songs to take the listener to a place of peace and quiet renewal - they certainly do for me."
"Matilda's Flowers" is available for CD purchase or download at CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes and Rick's website (www.ricksparksmusic.net).
