It's incredibly melodic and very soothing after a long day. You can just let the tracks wash over you like a soft spring rain. I enjoy watching Yanni's televised concerts on PBS. In fact the tour for this album is coming soon to a city near you, see Yanni tour dates on his website for a full schedule!
Certain tracks that stood out for me were #13 Yanni and Arturo because I am a long time fan of Arturo Sandoval! I was super happy to hear their collaboration! My second favorite is definitely track #10 called O Luce Che Brilla Nell'Oscurita. Before reading the jacket, I thought this was a collaboration with Andrea Bocelli, but the vocals were actually performed by Nathan Pacheco, lyrics were by him as well! Great track! For some reason I like to listen to operatic vocals while cooking Italian! :)
and last but not least, a third standout track is the last track #15 with vocals by Chloe, it stays with you, I wouldn't be surprised to hear it in a movie for some reason, strong almost haunting vocals! Notable Mention is Track #8, Can't Wait with vocals by Leslie Mills.
This CD is going to remain in my 'relaxation rotation' playlist, evening bath, night time driving, and I'd also add romantic dinners in, you can totally get lost in the music. This is a great CD and I defnitely recommend it!
