The pianist and composer known as Wayne Jones has released his newest collection of original songs, the aptly titled “Relaxing Piano Vol. 1.” The album is comprised of 11 tracks for a total listening time of nearly an hour, making for a round treatment of the Jones sound and feel, as well as a comprehensive introduction to this master of songwriting for piano. A cool, natural record with warmth and goodwill flowing through it like a mountain stream, “Relaxing Piano Vol. 1” is a perfect album and a true work of the finest art.
“Relaxing Piano Vol 1” transforms a room instantly. Jones' presence at his keys is implied, rather than felt, as the sonorousness of his playing fills the air like wafts of warm, fresh air. His compositions are intuitive, earnest, unassuming, humble, and bear a simplicity that bespeaks great taste. They exemplify the principle noted by Antoine de Saint-Exupery when he wrote, “A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” Jones never overplays, nor aims at the abstract, nor lapses into predictability. His pieces are plainly pretty and overtly wonderful, and boast an exceptionally high quality that places his gorgeous record far, far above anything the classiest wine bar is likely to have playing on the stereo.
Speaking candidly of his artistic goals for “Relaxing Piano Vol. 1,” Jones writes, “I hope that when someone listens to this album they might find a little relief from the stress of this busy world in which we all work and play, and that the music can help them connect with that part of us that gets pushed aside when we forget to take time and breathe.”
Wayne Jones' soothing and subtly arresting record, “Relaxing Piano Vol. 1,” is available online everywhere, with which publication the quality of life on planet Earth has come up a notch. Why be left out?
