Piano Dance ChristmasPiano Dance Christmas
Artist: The Standard Club
Release Date: 11/24/09
Price: 600 yen

Piano Dance Christmas came out late last month on iTunes, but I thought it’d be more appropriate to post about it closer to Christmas. It’s more of a mini-album, actually, and it includes one repeat (the inexplicably ubiquitous “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence”).

Cinema Kumikyoku – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on July 5, 2009

Cinema SuiteCinema Kumikyoku compiled by Piano Master
Release Date: 8/12/09
Price: 2362 yen

The title translates to “Cinema Suite,” and you can probably guess what the theme of the album will be. There are lots of old standbys, including “Miss a Thing” and “Neverending Story.” There are also some selections from Japanese movies, however. At first I thought Piano Master would be handling the entire album solo, but the cover clearly states that it’s only “compiled” by him. If so, I’m guessing “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence” will be the Standard Club version.

Piano StoryGirls Night Out ~Piano Story~ compiled by Piano Master
Release Date: 7/15/09
Price: 2362 yen

The “sui-ren” remix turns out to be the Sunset in Ibiza mix, which is a tad disappointing. I would’ve loved to hear the orchestral version. FARM haven’t listed artists on the official page, but they do have samples up.

Piano StoryGirls Night Out ~Piano Story~ compiled by Piano Master
Release Date: 7/1/09
Price: 2362 yen

Girls Night Out is the name of a series parties held in Japan targeted at women. Apparently they mostly play house music, as evidenced by the recent tie-up compilation, Girls Night Out ~Spice Up Your Life!~. “Piano Story” is a sub-release in the new Girls Night Out series, this time focusing on piano house songs compiled by Piano Master. The album will include songs from many hit piano dance acts, including Dance Music Company and The Standard Club. It’ll even include the elusive piano version of kagura’s “sui-ren.”
