Joseph L Young amazing transformational works Joseph L Young – Every Moment

Joseph L Young amazing transformational works Joseph L Young – EVERY MOMENT:  As I move into my 30th year of writing music reviews, I continue to be amazed by the high quality of music coming in here each and every day… and Joseph’s high quality work on his new release is one of the best examples of that perfection… as you’ll see on his BIO, he is a master of flute, keyboards and saxophone… you will find his musical discipline accomplishes exactly what he was trying to achieve (per the liner notes that accompanied this release… “I want my music to take listeners on a journey of discovery, to help them work through their emotions, releasing the negative as they grow and change, and serving as a catalyst to help with their transformation.”).  Songs like the 5:37 opener, “Prism” perfectly reflect his sincere love for music and the power it has to change the course of humanity… truly one of the most emotionally evocative compositions I have listened to (yet) in 2018!  Here’s a “teaser” clip from the album:

…Joseph has a whole host of music up on his YouTube channel, so be sure and SUBSCRIBE while you’re there.

Be sure you listen to this with your headphones on… things get out into the orchestral zone, and beautiful overtones are achieved on the 5:17 “Time Traveler“… Joseph’s string-work on this song will dig down deep into your soul and help you launch your own journey to the stars!

The dozen songs he has put together for the album are all pure joy, but one that includes Native American flute (by his friends Dan and Jean Selchow), “Vicariously Blue“, is certainly among my favorites… this tune will (I predict) be nominated for awards in more than one category (at ZMR & elsewhere, I suspect).

It is the weave of keyboard with saxophone and nature sounds on the closer, “Evening Repose“, that made it my personal favorite of the twelve offered up for your aural enlightenment… it is the longest composition on the album, and perfect for closure to the transformation you have experienced during this wonderful one-hour interlude.

I give this album a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99… it is definitely an album worth owning, and will give you aural pleasure for years to come.  Get more information about this highly talented composer at Joseph’s website.  You can also see a posting about the album at ZMR.   Rotcod Zzaj
