It's ancient, 30+ years old, and was on a crap piano and a crap cassete player, but it's the longest best playing I have of me, period.

In the shop and the mood struck me, grabbed the least bad piano and hit record.

My technique was way better back then, I was more creative, no arthritis or injuries yet blah blah blah.

I played at least 2 hours a day back then sometimes 6.

If I could just get back to this level I'd be super happy!

Wow!
Goes to show that assumptions don’t work— I had images of a vintage piano guy playing some Berceuse of Nocturne. Nice use of harmonies

I like the music! The beginning sounds a bit like some of the minimalist stuff from Ryuichi Sakamoto. And then you went somewhere else. Very creative indeed.

Some vital ideas there, terrific rhythm, amply justifies resurrecting your technique and seriously recommencing free improvisation.
