This Was Now - Solo Piano (2018)
"Daniel Meron must live on a higher plane than the rest of us... utilizing classical chops, post-bebop smarts and a definite swing, Meron makes his 88 keys into a full orchestra." - The Aquarian
"The opening phrase of “Body And Soul” rips Daniel Meron open like a haphazardly wrapped present." - Jerusalem Post
"Playing in a completely spontaneous mode—just sit down and touch the keys—Daniel Meron has created a consistently compelling listening experience with This Was Now." - All About Jazz
This Was Now - Daniel's new album is a result of the pianist and composer's pursuit of heightened awareness. After incorporating meditation into his life and creative work, the Israeli-born and Brooklyn-based jazz musician entered the studio to explore the art of solo piano and improvisation. Playing minimally arranged to completely spontaneous versions of some of his favorite standards and popular songs, Meron searches for sincere moments of inspiration while striving to deliver clear ideas in real time. After releasing two critically acclaimed ensemble albums that feature his compositions, Meron turns to familiar music with the goal of exposing other sides of his musical voice, at this point in time.
