Beautifully blended expanded jazz James Fernando – The Lonely Sailor

Beautifully blended expanded jazz James Fernando – THE LONELY SAILOR:  If you’re a piano lover, and especially a jazz piano lover, you’re going to find the beautifully blended “expanded” jazz that James creates one of the most amazing musical experiences you’ve ever had… to get an intimate and close-up view of the opening title track, “The Lonely Sailor“, watch the video teaser first…

…I most strongly recommend that you SUBSCRIBE to the JFernandoMusic channel on YouTube, so you can watch many more exciting performances in many different genres.

James achieves something decidedly different on many of the tunes on the album by using what he calls “electronically augmented piano”… as you listen to the 4:56 “The Other Side of the Storm” with your headphones on, you’ll hear just how attractive, and sometimes haunting, that can be… it’s surely one of the most unique piano experiences I’ve had (yet) in 2020!

The bold keyboard strokes James uses on “Untold” are an expression of absolute joy, and had me hitting “replay” often, so I could catch every nuance of his very unique piano style… if you love new and refreshing in your listening experience, you’re going to love this tune as much as I did.

I had absolutely no difficulty in deciding my choice for personal favorite of the eight enchanting creations James offers up for our aural enjoyment… the closer, “Where the Grass is Greener“, uses that augmented piano to give you superb images of that place we are all seeking!

I give James a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information on the James Fernando website.        Rotcod Zzaj
