Chappell's first album, Tender Ritual, was a collection of piano solos released in 1985 on his own Unspeakable Freedom label. In 1986, Chappell was signed with the newly formed Music West Records. That same year, Chappell released Dusk, another collection of piano solos. It would be the first of Chappell's albums to appear on a Billboard chart, peaking at No. 19 on its Top New Age Albums chart. With his third album, Chappell's records started to include small-ensemble accompaniment and (on 1990s Saturday's Rhapsody) full orchestration.
Featuring piano and nothing else, Jim Chappell's 1986 debut album exudes an intimate, homespun feel. The pianist self-produced Tender Ritual when he wasn't serving time at UCLA as accompanist for the dance department. Amazingly enough, he personally sold over 11,000 copies of the record while playing gigs up and down the West Coast. While Chappell would go on to release far slicker albums, there's something totally endearing about Tender Ritual's smooth and melodic mix of light jazz, new classical and adult contemporary pop.
