Timothy Crane’s third album is a nice collection of classy piano tunes that provide a pleasant listening experience.
While Crane is an accomplished and versatile performer, he has chosen to make his elegant compositions the focus of this record. The melodies and chord progressions are graceful and tasteful, brought to vivid life by Crane’s masterful piano technique, as well as his synthesized orchestration and some accompaniment by Rick Henley on acoustic guitar. At times, both Crane’s compositions and performances remind me a little bit of Bruce Hornsby.
This is a fine CD that is a delight to listen to from beginning to end.
