Infrared Roses is the wonderful work of Bob Bralove. From the bio on his web site:

Bob Bralove was the MIDI wizard, producer (Infrared Roses, Built to Last), and co-writer of Gold and Platinum selling songs, including: “Picasso Moon,” “Way to Go Home,” “Easy Answers,” “Parallelogram,” “Little Nemo in Nightland,” “Sparrow Hawk Row,” with the Grateful Dead for the last eight years of the long, strange trip…. Bralove is especially well known for his undeniable creative sound, performing and designing with the Grateful Dead, the mind-bending, avant-garde Drums and Space segments of their live shows.

Infrared Roses is out of print, but maybe it’ll come back when GDP/Rhino get the download program going. Stay tuned.

Bob recently released a CD of solo piano improvisations called Stories in Black and White.
