Mixing melodies with nature sounds is a common practice amongst New Age musicians these days. But it's not the mix that is important; it's the quality of the music that makes the mix work. Kenio Fuke is a Brazilian pianist and this is his debut album with Real Music. It is not disappointing. Rather, the quality of the piano work to achieve a relaxing yet interesting mood is top shelf. The piano compositions are contemplative but never unduly so; light but not unimaginative. I found the titles appropriate for the tracks, eliciting a visual to accompany the melodies. Garden of Roses gave me the impression of a stroll through a regal Victorian rose garden. Spirit of the Water took my imagination to waves and beaches. Enchanted Forest was the dense cover and peaceful retreat of an early morning walk in the forest. Sounds of water and birds accompany the compositions, lending an air of nature without being overdone. They are skillfully dabbed through the tracks to create an atmosphere, not a jungle or a flood that overwhelms the senses. I did find this to be a preferred early morning collection. The music is soft, gentle and great with coffee and watching the sunrise. But it will enhance any space where peace, relaxation and calm are called for. This is a very serene and comfortable collection of piano that is skillfully crafted by Kenio Fuke. Relaxing Melodies of Nature is a good addition to your ambient collection.
