5. 2012-Nov-10 Coming Back

2012-Nov-10 Coming Back

The third album in the "Solo Piano Diary" Trilogy ==================== The series was created as a means for Lindquist to seek truth from his own heart as well as an outlet for self-expression, and these wonderful pieces are in their purest and most sincere form, unedited and in the moment. Strong classical influences can be heard as well as jazz, new age, and even a little gospel. The moods are consistent enough to provide a subtle backdrop for other quiet activities, but I highly recommend giving this album your full attention at least a few times, as it’s too beautiful to not savor in its entirety. I will reuse my own quote from the previous two Diary reviews and re-state that “This is music to get lost in, hoping never to be found again!” as it is just as fitting for this collection. There are too many tracks to mention each one, but I have to say that there is no filler or fluff and all of the pieces are reflective and spare. The beginning piece, dated 11/10/12 and titled “Coming Back,” is a lovely intro, setting a quiet, peaceful tone for the album. “I Need to Sleep” has the feeling of late-night musings at the piano - minimal and soft-spoken. As would be expected from the title, “My Gospel” has a very hymn-like style which is mostly quiet with a few gospel phrases in the middle that present a pleasant surprise. “Be There” is subtle and very graceful with lots of open space, giving the music plenty of breathing room. “So Happy” conveys a deep sense of contentment rather than a giddy joy. “Always” expresses a tender passion that makes it a favorite. “Walk With Me” is warm and peaceful while “Farewell” is more conversational and bittersweet. “My Island” closes the album with a soft-spoken tribute to a special place. If you are new to Christian Lindquist’s Solo Piano Diary series, this is a great place to start for soothing, relaxing piano music with substance. If you have the first two in the series, #3 is a perfect finish to the set. It is available from Amazon, iTunes, and CD Baby. Very highly recommended! //Kathy Parsons

2008-Aug-18

The second album in the "Solo Piano Diary" Trilogy ================= With twenty-six tracks, it’s difficult to pick out favorites - I love ‘em all! Although each piece is distinctive and unique, the pace and tone of the music create all overall mood of quiet reflection. Some pieces are very melancholy and some are tranquil and contented, but all are extraordinary gems that gracefully flow from one to the next. There are very strong classical influences in Lindquist’s music as well as occasional jazz and new age elements, but this is music that flows directly from his heart to his fingers, seeking his own personal truth without fear or inhibition - art in its purest form. The absence of titles allows the listener to imagine what Lindquist was thinking or dreaming of when he created the music or to let the music spark the listener’s imagination without any hints of what specifically inspired the pieces. The dreamy quality of many of the pieces makes this an exceptionally relaxing collection as well as an incredibly beautiful one. I give it my highest recommendation. //Kathy Parsons
