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

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…

New Biography on The Cars Singer/Bassist Benjamin Orr by Vermont Writer Joe Milliken to be Published November 2018!

Bellows Falls, VT – Veteran music journalist Joe Milliken recently announced a publishing deal with the Lanham, Maryland-based publisher Rowman & Littlefield Publishers to produce his first book, a biography about the late Benjamin Orr. Orr was the co-founder, co-lead singer, and bassist for the platinum-selling rock band The Cars. Titled Let’s Go! Benjamin Orr and The Cars, a release date is set for November 15, 2018.

Often considered the band’s heartthrob, Orr possessed an incredible voice, diverse musical talent and rare stage presence, all balanced by a magnetic, yet enigmatic personality, striking good looks, and a relentless determination to reach rock stardom. Born Benjamin Orzechowski (aka “Benny Eleven Letters”) and raised in the Cleveland suburb of Parma Heights, Orr was, prior to becoming a world-famous rock star with The Cars, a “teen star” as a house band musician for the nationally syndicated television show Upbeat.

A few years later Ben met his musical partner and …
