Isn't that Bunny
Ken recently recorded a piano version of a Pentwater live show-stopper, "Kill the Bunny" at Ron Fox's Time-Warp studios. Originally conceived and scored as a piano piece, the band's manic arrangement of the instrumental was always an audience favorite and keyboard tour-de-force! It's on Ab-Dul the bands' new CD. The new recording showcases the contrapuntal movement and twisted melodic lines that Ken played live on the percussive Hammond, but here on a crisp Steinway.
