With so much music available these days, from Country, Post-Punk, Monotonous Repetitive Dance to Chatty Rap, here is a CD that is un-obtrusive and a pleasure to the ears. Melody is all over this intuitive stroll through the mind of a composer who knows what one wants to hear when they just want to unwind. Some of these tunes extract “trance” elements via the form as some are more of a “pop” song formula. Overall the tunes are quite catchy and I find myself humming along. I like the use of the piano, the synth arrangements, and the mood each song represents. “Eloquence Remembered” just about floored me (My mental imagery may be different from yours), and “Till There Was You” created such a feeling of longing, again great use of melody. I would strongly recommend “Home On The Horizon” to all whom like instrumental New Age with a beat as well as you contemporary Jazz fans out there. I notice he has other CD’s out and after hearing his discography, he defiantly has a signature style. The type when you hear it, you know it’s Curtis Macdonald.
