Album Review

With David Lanz having successfully made the transition from new age pioneer to smooth jazz artist, there are very few pianists remaining whose sole focus is the gently rhythmic, deeply melodic, and healing music that defines the classic genre. Kevin Kern is a newly minted Steinway artist (joining the prestigious ranks of, among others, Vladimir Horowitz, Herbie Hancock, and Billy Joel), and plays his latest set of stunning, soothing, and captivating melodies on The Hamburg Concert Grand — which he calls one of the most lyrical instruments he's ever performed on. More than simply a collection of ten originals (one of which, "Keepers of the Flame," was inspired by an ancient Gregorian chant) and a glowing cover of Sting's "Fields of Gold," the album is an impressionistic glimpse into Kern's childhood experiences of sitting at the piano in a darkened room lit only by firelight. This imagery inspires the classical-tinged intimacy of pure, hypnotic piano pieces like "Pearls of Joy," but Kern also enjoys sharing his memories with his small ensemble of Terry Miller (bass) and Mike Miller. Miller's acoustic guitar shimmers as the harmony line on "Remembering the Light" and joyfully shares the melody on parts of "Safe in Your Embrace" and "Musings." Channeling Imagination's Light magnificently, the sensitive and spirited Kern ensures that the flame of true new age music burns on.

Imagination's Light

Kevin Kern is no Yanni, he is an artist that always comes up with new and innovative beautiful music. I have had every single album Kevin has ever done and "Remembering the Light" & "Keepers of the Flame" in this album are as good as anything he has ever done. If you enjoy good music check out his "Enchanted Garden" and you will see what I mean. People that appreciate good music always comment about Kevin's music when I play it. I just wish Itunes had more artist like Kevin Kern.

Imagination's Light

If you understand piano music, you can understand the nuances of these compositions. It isn't really reproducible except by Kevin Kern; he plays chords and grace notes with his heart. I can't believe people compare him to Yanni. That's just silly. They're not in the same ballpark. Even if you don't understand piano music, you can understand that. Kern's genius is always at work: unpretentious, but brilliantly direct and thoughtful, and very soul-searching. You can almost hear him "looking around the corner" musically.

Kevin's piano playing is beautiful. I could listen to his music anywhere, anytime. Dim the lights, pour a glass of wine and indulge yourself in his world of tranquillity.
