While Visiting India with His Mates

Prudence Farrow

Dear Prudence was composed by John Lennon while visiting India with his mates, inspired by Prudence Farrow. Thus, I took special delight in bringing my raga and jazz orientations for improvisational exploration stemming from this Beatles classic for thirty minutes and change.

Dear Prudence is the opening track of the new Chance To Say album consisting of piano improvisation on three Beatles songs, the others being Come Together and The Word.
