Keiko Matsui Piano Smooth Jazz CD Review

Piano is the latest Smooth Jazz artist Keiko Matsui, and another is great for the talented musician.

It's a rare day that I can get it on CD by an artist who can say honestly do not have a bad track in the bunch. I am more than happy to announce that is exactly what I say about this. Not bad but not one in the bunch. No fillers here at all, with each song standing tall on its own.

One of the nice thing about the CD is the way all the participating artists seem to be truly enjoyed. Combine that with the overall presentation and you have one of the most impressive releases ever Keiko Matsui.

If you are even slightly into soft jazz music you will enjoy this CD. Piano version of the generally large. I give it my double thumbs up. You will not be disappointed with one single track.

While this entire CD highlights the truly standout tunes are track 1 - the presence of the Moon, track 3 - Whisper of the mirror, and track 5 - The light through the trees.

My Bonus Pick SmoothLee, and that got [Sore ... as in "Stuck On Repeat"] is track 10 - See you there. That's right!
