Inspiringly intimate solo piano Marcos Ariel – Piano Blossoms

Inspiringly intimate solo piano Marcos Ariel – PIANO BLOSSOMS:  Though it’s been a while, I’ve reviewed Marcos before, but mostly on Latin jazz albums… on this new outing, he’s created ten inspiringly intimate solo piano compositions that reflect a totally different side of his artistry… the album can be listened to here…

If you’re interested in all of his music, I strongly recommend that you SUBSCRIBE to the Marcos Ariel YouTube channel.

As you scan the song titles, you’ll quickly realize that Marcos composed the tunes based on a whole range of flowers that he says “helped to form the soundtrack of my life”… the 4:55 “Lavender” is one of the most emotional on the album… I have no doubt that DJ’s (of all stripes) will be airing this beautiful song frequently!

The opener, “Passionflower“, gave me sensations of both sadness and joy at the living of life… Marcos’s touch is superb on the keyboard, and will quickly make you a fan if you love solo piano.

If you live for “new and fresh” when it comes to your piano listening, you’ll certainly enjoy the 5:11 “Fuchsia” as much as I did… it’s actually one of the best piano improvisations I’ve heard (yet) in 2021… I would be surprised if this doesn’t get recommended for (and WIN) an award!

I had no difficulty (whatsoever) making my choice for personal favorite of the ten tantalizing tunes Marcos offers up… “Bougainvillea” will carry you into a freshly renewing season of possibilities, no doubt.

Marcos gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this most pleasant solo piano excursion.  Get more information about this high-talent artist on Marcos’s website.                          Rotcod Zzaj
