CD Review – Lucid Dreams, by Arturo Mayorga

Arturo Mayorga presents a collection of eleven tunes that accomplish what good music does – take listeners’ minds off their cares and transport them to a place of inspiration and enlightenment.

The pianist/keyboardist alternates between solo tracks, duets, and a full ensemble. The rich sound is achieved by a full consort of musicians on guitar, drums, percussion, flute, oboe, English horn, voice, violin, viola, and cello.

Mayorga is a master of his craft, constructing snappy compositions around his fine, pointed melodies. He has an acute understanding of pop sensibilities that makes his music accessible to listeners of every stripe.

This is an enjoyable CD that is engaging from beginning to end.

--Raj Manoharan
