CD Review – Thoughts of Tomorrow, by Uwe Gronau

German keyboardist-composer Uwe Gronau consistently puts out top-notch albums, but this just might be his best yet.

Gronau nails every track of this all-instrumental collection, from engaging melodies to radical synthesizer textures and sounds. Gronau also displays his virtuoso chops on primarily or solo piano tunes.

Co-producer and long-time collaborator Clemens Paskert also does a fantastic job keeping time, both behind an actual kit and with drum programming.

My only complaint is that many of the songs end abruptly, but that probably has more to do with the fact that each individual piece is so good that I didn't want it to end.

This is a slick, edgy fusion of jazz, pop, and rock that has both bounce and bite.

--Raj Manoharan
