"Stress Position is an album of piano music by Chicago based composer and pianist Drew Baker; it is brilliant. His way of writing for the piano is based on the sonorities—the unique sounds a piano makes and the idiosyncratic way a piano makes them. It is extremely inventive and aurally seductive, and each piece speaks with its own voice."

- Ira Byelick, American Record Guide

Stress Position features 5 stunning performances of Drew Baker's piano music by renowned pianist Marilyn Nonken. Each piece presents the piano in a different light, from the eery resonances of Asa Nisi Masa to the otherworldly sounds of Gaeta to the politically-charged title track.

The CD features extensive liner notes by the composer and the beautiful cover art and graphic design by Jennifer Boyd.
