About this album

  • Published: Sep 3, 2011

Dedicated to the people of Japan. This album was released exclusively with Jamendo March 9th 2011. Japan was rocked by a great earthquake on March 11, 2011. I offer my most sincere wishes for recovery to all who are affected by this event. Thank You.

~ Like winter holidays spending time alone, memories of that special person, that special time. Tracks 1 and 6 are like piano solo bookends of this soft, cool-jazz style collection. All tracks were mastered to about -5.6 db and not maxed out intentionally to keep levels more ambient. Please enjoy these musical sketches.

These were very nice, cool jazz songs . . . took me back through my jazz days and gave me that happy bubble in my chest that good jazz always gave me . . . This was very quiet jazz, with a strong and well paced piano and nicely controlled brush drums predominating, but mostly it was the quiet that led . . Sentimental, melancholy and hopeful . . . with tears in my eyes . .. I look up and see the clouds part . . . and with a little bit of blue sky looking down at me, I am reminded that while I am left alone with my memories; at least I still have them . . . Both the piano end bits were so peaceful and lovely with calming white spaces that punctuated the emotions of the whole album . . . - M^^W -

There you go again.. your...sweet,small,dainty and innocent as could be..and a geisha that....pretty as could be..My heart burst from within..with feelings of instantly being in love with you..again...As I looked upon your lovely cute and endearing face..and that big endearing catchy smile of yours....But you didnt notice me...or even see you walking by..I was now 22years of age..And I simply adored and loved you...from a child and a teeneager...growing up...and I still remember you...when we both grew up in..And you left the village....and I followed you to where I found out.. You where a geisha girl..But still from a distants...I still love and adored you so.. Hearttouching. heartfelt...and heart yearning.. romantic.poinjant and passion.. dreamy..jazzy,instrumental. soul music..Played to perfection..and felt with affection and make you sigh and even shed a tear for him and her.. Charming and romantic..passionate and heartfelt piano..jazz,instrumenal music..That touches the inner core and sentiments of the magically..soothing and profoundly..bewitching and effortlessly at that..

Questa è veramente la musica più adatta per sognare al chiar di luna! Atmosfere inconsuete e suggestive che catturano l' ascoltatore fin da subito, grazie alla magia creata dal piano... Da ascoltare e scaricare!

This soothing night time listening, cool-jazz is so tender and emotional . . . a little blue but definitely calming . . . This is great stuff to play in a night club or at home in an evening when you are looking for a way to relax and have music to keep you company . . . and understand and sympathize with your mood . . Nelson plays perfectly on his piano and the added accompaniments are part of these excellent compositions . . . This is a beautiful album . . . Definitely worth adding to a play-list.
