Inner World landscapes Gary Schmidt – AFTERTHOUGHTS: I’ve been reviewing Gary’s wonderful piano compositions since at least 2018 (Even For A Moment), and find this new release full of the vitality of inner world landscapes that he’s able to create for our ears. First, I (most strongly) recommend that you watch Gary and cellist on the beautiful “Ancient Time Telling“…
You’ll find a LOT more videos to enjoy when you SUBSCRIBE to Gary’s YouTube channel (I’ve been there for years now). All the way from classical to Beatles – very refreshing.
Many times you’ll find that piano albums contain long (and sometimes tiring) versions of songs… Gary always has pieces that will hold your interest without “belaboring the point“… a perfect example is the 2:42 “Ellen’s Song“, one of my favorite piano songs in 2023!
Gary’s new album, officially to release on 22 September, 2023, will be a most welcome addition to your collection… you can also pre-order it at Gary’s Bandcamp page for the album, below… this gets an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 from me, and certainly merits a longer review for contemporary instrumental albums.
