Moving emotional solo piano Kris Baines – Melodies & Interludes, Vol. 2

Moving emotional solo piano Kris Baines – MELODIES & INTERLUDES, VOL. 2: The best way to get to know a player is by actually watching them perform… the video below isn’t from Kris’s new release, but it’s recent, and displays a talent for solo piano that’s far above average…

…be sure to SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel; you’ll find many other wonderful performances there. 

I’m planning on attending his upcoming Seattle concert, too… it would be just superb to watch him perform tunes like the 2:50 “Me and My Piano” from the new release… intimate, but vibrantly full of life!

The expressive touches Kris renders on “Gentle Persuasion” (samples will be available just before 19 October, 2018) are just marvelous… I especially loved his left-hand lower register work on this piece.

Joy abounds on the 2:39 “A Day with You”… in fact, I’ll go so far as to say that this is the most joy-filled piano piece I’ve listened to (yet) in 2018… that’s what really makes Kris’s keyboard work stand out from all the rest… an ability (that few players have) to convey feelings most pleasantly!

After my second complete listen through this tantalizing seventeen-song album, there was no doubt that “Raindrops on the Window” is my personal favorite… you can actually feel the fresh droplets of rain slipping and sliding down the window.  Wonderful dynamics on this composition as well.

I give Kris a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this excellent solo piano set.  Get more information on Kris’s website.     Rotcod Zzaj
