Contemporary Instrumental/ New Age Review: Christopher Boscole-Soul Dreams

Release Date: January, 1, 2018
Label: Independent

Christopher Boscole’s recent release titled Soul Dreams provides a thought provoking introduction with the colorful artwork on the CD cover.

If you look closely you will discover the many symbols relating to humanity and our soul’s travels. If you believe in reincarnation this would apply as well. I do have a belief that kind of experience is very possible. I think we all have Soul Dreams regardless if we hold a belief system that does not support more than one life in a physical existence.  I try to look into and beyond the music when I see a title, artwork and listen to see if the music falls in line with the suggested theme on the cover (similar to a book). I want to see if it can transport me with the suggestions in front of me, in the form of pictures and colors and then of course the music, the most important element of all.

I have to say that Soul Dreams was a transporting experience and it really made me realize how many vivid dreams I have. I have experienced different periods of time in history or have been another person in my dreams. When I see myself as another person, there is my clarification and personification of a past life. Call it what you like, I think everything happens for a reason, similar to the science of cause and effect. To me all things are interrelated.

Christopher’s music is heartfelt and appealing. It prompts you to discover your soul and all its experiences. And why not? There is a lot we just brush off as every day occurrences or happenstance. Should we all look a bit harder at the images that come to mind in our awake and beta sleep? I think so. Music is the keeper of the gate and the one thing that can open it up. It can put a new perspective on our existence here on this planet. I know this is heavy food for thought but this is what the music sparked inside me.

Christopher’s music is simply piano, nothing more. And that my friends can be a wonderful offering and quite enough to engage any potential listener in my estimation. At times I think I will run out of things to say about instrumental piano music but somehow the magic happens and the words just flow. I think my evaluation will line up with the creative relationships between music, nature, and photography through multimedia videos that the artist has explored in the past and presently.

Is it time for you to look into the mirror of life - your Soul Dreams? I hope the music inspires you all to do so and that you will find the peace and contentment that this music can provide.

4/5 Stars

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
