Momentum

Momentum by Frank Steiner, Jr.

Based on his past recordings, at first blush one was expecting a no edge musical experience somewhat similar to Steiner’s label mate Bernward Koch. There is a certain element of truth to that expectation but as soon as the disc loaded this was the first indication that this was going to be a unique listening experience. With only five tracks present, the shortest track runs no less than nine minutes suggesting that Steiner was in an adventurous mood.
 

Remembering

Remembering by Bernward Koch

Remembering is the seventh Real Music release from German pianist/composer Bernward Koch.  One of Real’s most popular and enduring artists, Koch has been creating graceful, uplifting music for several decades now, releasing albums on the label since 1998 (he released his debut, Flowing, in 1989). A classically-trained and internationally-loved artist, Koch’s music is always sweetly optimistic yet expressive and complex enough to keep it interesting with repeated plays.

Forgotten Road

Forgotten Road by Eamonn Karran

Forgotten Road is the second album from pianist/composer Eamonn Karran following his 2014 Real Music debut, Distant Sun. Even more so than his first album, Forgotten Road evokes the ancient Celtic roots of Karran’s home in Northern Ireland. The music is piano-based (electronic) and often richly orchestrated (synth), reflecting a variety of moods and colorful life experiences. A devoted family man (father to five and recently a grandfather for the first time), Karran often finds his musical inspiration comes from his daily life.

Elements Series: Etheria

Elements Series: Etheria

Etheria is the new fifth volume of The Elements Series that Peter Kater recorded on the Real Music label back in 2005. I loved those albums, which were titled Air, Earth, Water, and Fire, so it came as a very pleasant surprise that there was a fifth installment created almost ten years later. Kater’s piano and synthesizers are accompanied on some of the seven tracks by Richard Hardy on bamboo flutes, and soprano and tenor saxophones.

Element Series: Etheria

Back in 2005 Peter Kater created the Element Series via four separate individual discs simply entitled Air, Earth, Fire and Water. Close to a decade later Kater decided to add to the Elements Series and return to the spatial and ambient themes and revisit the mellow magic courtesy of his latest release Etheria.
