Artful keyboard magic Holly Jones – Art on the Piano

Artful keyboard magic Holly Jones – ART ON THE PIANO:  This is my first listen to Holly’s artful keyboard magic, but I can tell you right now that it certainly won’t be my last… Holly sent me the following video link that shows her in a LIVE performance of “Repose” from the new album…

…pure and simply lovely, isn’t it?  To view more of Holly’s moving works, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to her YouTube video channel – I did, right away.

One of the most striking compositions on the release is the simply titled “Butterfly“… as Holly states in the liner notes – “”I wish for my music to reach the truth in each person listening… to help them take pause in the busyness of life and to bring them peace and clarity“… the fanciful flights she takes with her brush (i.e., her keyboard) on this 5:00 composition will make you feel the flitting wings she is portraying… I believe this song will be getting some MAJOR airplay!

The title track, “Art on the Piano“, will mesmerize you; if you listen to it (at least for your first sitting) with your headphones on, you’ll realize you are in the presence of a true piano master.

Holly doesn’t “dazzle” you with rills and trills, but is able to use the “silent spots” to let you fill in your own scenery, especially on pieces like the wonderfully calming “Stillness of Brilliance“… I (truly) believe that this song will be nominated for (and WIN) awards!

Of the eleven sensual pieces Holly sonically “paints” for us, I found “Repose” to be an immediate personal favorite… her “pacing” is pure perfection, and she always keeps the listener in mind… (I would love to see a LIVE video of this piece on her YouTube channel – hint! hint!).

I give Holly a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this splendid sonic and visual piano adventure.  Get more information on Holly’s website.               Rotcod Zzaj
