by Omar Akram
After copping a Grammy for his third record Echoes of Love, Omar is back with a full-on sonic assault to make sure he does it again. Not exactly pop, he does turn it up a notch loading the new age deck with pop and jazz smarts, keeping it buoyant, upbeat and winkingly sassy.” —Chris Spector, Midwest Record
After celebrating his 2012 Grammy-winning Echoes of Love, Omar softens the mood to serenade us with the romantic melodies of Daytime Dreamer. Featuring six brand new tracks and five previously released selections, the familiar splashes of Omar's signature world textures (oud, duduk, violin and guitar) weave back and forth in a sublime dance with his exquisite piano compositions.
Day of Life
by Bernward Koch
Koch takes you to a world full of peace and magic, where the melodies and sounds are part of the context that creates the magnificent compositions.” —reviewsnewage.com
Each track conjures an idyllic day, a dreamy journey through nature, as though Monet’s pastels have come to life. Concerns float away while basking in this gorgeous hour of Koch’s signature music. Describing his recording process for Day of Life, Koch said, “Flooded with good memories, I became more in the composing of it.” You can become more in the listening.
