Wondrous joyful peaceful piano Kathryn Kaye – Solace of Mountains and Clouds

Wondrous joyful peaceful piano Kathryn Kaye – SOLACE OF MOUNTAINS AND CLOUDS:  Readers who frequent these pages & posts will know that Kathryn’s excellent piano works are truly wondrous, joyful and peaceful, and certainly among my favorites.  The player list is long and full of talent… Charlie Bisharat (violin), Jill Haley (oboe and English horn), Tony Levin (bass) and Gus Sebring (French horn)… it was co-produced by Kathryn, Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton (Eaton also appears on several tracks on accordion, bass and electric guitar). 

Though I didn’t see any live videos, you will find many of Kathryn’s albums by SUBSCRIBING to her YouTube channel… I would suggest (for the next release, maybe) that it would be wonderful to see Kathryn captured on a live performance (hint! hint!).

Kathryn’s own words very well explain the creativity and strength you will witness on beautiful songs like “Mountains Touching Sky“… she says “Through listening to music and closely observing nature, we can learn to better understand and appreciate life as a whole, in all its exquisite beauty, transience, and fragility.”  I believe this song is most worthy of an award – and predict that it will be considered (and WIN)!

The integration of the other players is seamless and flawlessly recorded… just listen to the title track, “Solace of Mountains and Clouds“, and you’ll hear why I say that… what I especially liked about this recording is that the weave is subtle… nuanced… you’ll definitely be hearing this song in major rotations on stations around the globe.

With songs as sensitive as Kathryn creates, it’s sometimes difficult to choose my personal favorite… on this ten-song opus, though, I found it quite easy… the closer, “Stories Told by Trees“,  is just full of magical twists and turns that will raise you to new heights of wonderment… in fact, this is my favorite piano song (yet) in 2019!

Kathryn and her players get a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.  Get more information on Kathryn’s website.      Rotcod Zzaj
