New Age Instrumental Review: Lynn Evers Yew-Sunset Breeze

Release Date: March 1, 2018
Label: Independent

Lynn Evers Yew has just released her newest offering titled Sunset Breeze. The recording’s production values are outstanding, making it a listen beyond reproach.

My immediate thought was how a Sunset Breeze feels against your face. I think it becomes even more eventful when you are at the ocean watching the sun go down on another day.

The one factor that I can relate to the most with a recording like this is the intentional simplicity. I think the focus is prevalent while listening to music with just one instrument. The piano is the key to opening the door to any avenue one wishes to take. To be more specific, it is a tool to either relax, meditate or have played in the background while you are doing something else. You could say any music serves that purpose however that would be a generic outlook on what you can actually discover “inside” the music.

I also can feel the profoundness of Lynn’s music and how relates to life itself, in an all-encompassing way. The rhythm of the compositions is akin to the heartbeat of a human, an animal, all life that abounds through Mother Nature.  That is quite prolific in terms of how music can be perceived and or interpreted.

Music such as this is a universal language. It has no boundaries or preconceived lines in the sand per say. That does not imply that it is homogenized, however. Piano music can take many different forms and create atmospheres depending on the listener's mood, temperament or expectations. So many different factors come into play prior when listening to any new age instrumental track, particularly piano based.

Sunset Breeze is designed and created for the soul seeker, the contemplator, the lovers of life. Whatever applies to you, there is something that you can picture in your mind while listening to the music of Lynn Yew Evers. The beauty of the CD cover becomes evident once you hear the music. 

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…
