It includes Ellsworth’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in four movements, the soundtrack music to the video production of Beside The Manor Selby (which he also wrote and directed), and a bonus track “Checkers’ Rhapsody” which was composed in his late teens and clocks in over 11 minutes. The song from the album “In Grief Unbound” was awarded Semi-Finalist placement in the VH1 2014 Song of the Year Contest.
