Twisted Martini – free improvisation flow

"Twisted Martini" is a free improvisation flow performed on solo piano by Paweł Grudzień, inspired by Michael Godard's painting of the same name.

Description of the painting from Michael Godard’s website:

This image is a fun take on the Wizard of Oz. On the left side there is a huge twister and Dorothy is seen in her red slippers walking Toto on the yellow brick road. Underneath the trailer you can see the shoes from the Wicked Witch. Of course, no trailer park is complete without an olive wearing wife beater and beer in hand. (

Recorded in Dublin, Ireland, October 2013.

I would like to thank John Holland from Pianos Plus Dublin ( for allowing me to use their beautiful Steinway grand piano and the Recital Hall for the purpose of this recording.
