I have four or five of John Jarvis' solo albums. I had to search all over for them, as they are no longer in production. According to Wikipedia they are:

So Fa So Good (MCA Master Series, 1985)
Something Constructive (MCA Master Series, 1986)
Whatever Works (CD) (MCA Master Series, 1988)
Pure Contours (MCA Master Series, 1990)
Balancing Act (Liberty Records, 1993)
View From a Southern Porch (Barlotone Productions, 2003)

A close colleague of mine(Jim Wilson) also writes in this style and had real success after launching into the New Age music scene in the 90's(which was ten years after it was a big thing).

Sofa, so good??? I remember.... Your bio is wrong, you have released solo albums. That is truly one of my favorites! Keep doing what you do!.

Jarvis' chops are not unlike those of Keith Emerson, arguably the greatest keyboardist of the modern era. Anyone even approaching his stature should be given a lot of attention.

Not sure how to describe the work of John Jarvis except to say, I love his work. Sweet piano sound punctuated with the synthesizer to create a sound and tempo that invigorates. Love bike riding to his original music. Wish he had more CDs.

How about "Balancing Act" and "Pure Contours"? Both great! Nothing better than listening to John Jarvis, drinking that first cup of coffee and watching the sunrise.

I love his album called "View from a Southern Porch"

OMG where is this man's work? I love "Paul Wants A Pig" off of "Whatever Works" album. I can not find a download anywhere.
This music was amazing!

I wonder too why this bio says "Jarvis may not have released any solo material" when in fact he has released six. You would think someone publishing something would research things a little better than that.

Just completed converting one side of Jarvis's "So Fa So Good" to digital format. Was looking for that album cover to add to my Itunes.

I am especially fond of his first solo album, "So Fa So Good."

In “Southern Porch”, John’s 6th solo recording, his piano technique blurs the lines between stride, celtic, jazz, country, classical, and even bluegrass music, all the while showcased inside original musical compositions reminiscent of Randy Newman, Floyd Cramer, and Fats Waller.
