Soul Mates

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
The classically trained Danny Wright has an exquisite touch at the piano. Soul Mates opens out like a florid musical bouquet, abounding in strong melodies and bittersweet sentiments without getting syrupy. The first two songs -- "Angel's Voices" and "Soul Mates" -- are variations on the same theme, leading into the warm traditional folk tune, "The Water Is Wide." Here Wright combines synth string arrangements with a live violin counterpart, building up the moving melody as if to convey the steadfastness of true love. "Keys to the Heart" was commissioned for a marriage proposal -- which apparently worked -- and leads promisingly into "Everlasting Love." Other originals ...

Barnes & Noble - Carol Wright
The classically trained Danny Wright has an exquisite touch at the piano. Soul Mates opens out like a florid musical bouquet, abounding in strong melodies and bittersweet sentiments without getting syrupy. The first two songs -- "Angel's Voices" and "Soul Mates" -- are variations on the same theme, leading into the warm traditional folk tune, "The Water Is Wide." Here Wright combines synth string arrangements with a live violin counterpart, building up the moving melody as if to convey the steadfastness of true love. "Keys to the Heart" was commissioned for a marriage proposal -- which apparently worked -- and leads promisingly into "Everlasting Love." Other originals were written for a birth ("Greyson's Lullaby"), a roast to honor comedy writer Milt Rosen and his wife, Judy ("Tender Moments"), and as a memorial to the Kennedy family. Although many of the pieces find their richness in sweeping melody lines and fancy arpeggios, others venture into more adventurous terrain. "Loving You" offers some intriguing passages, while the heavily orchestrated "Everything Must Change" (a George Benson standard) seems to pull its inspiration from a 1940s film noir. There's really a lot of variety here, yet the album seems to flow along like one continuous composition. Heartfelt, romantic, and very classy.
All Music Guide - Jonathan Widran
Not quite as mellifluous and daring as David Lanz but much more direct and emotional than Michael Jones, Danny Wright is one of new age piano's most popular performers, with over four million albums sold to date. This is a lovely collection of gentle, wistful romances perfect for many occasions: background on a romantic evening, an aid to melancholy reflection, an inspiration to love again. Tracks like "Loving You" show the depth of Wright's dramatic ability simply playing solo, while "Keys to the Heart" finds him creating beautiful point-counterpoint statements with violin. The lush, filmic "The Water Is Wide" balances a mournful violin with elegant high-octave improvisation. Wright creates most of his own material, but his cover of Celine Dion's "The Prayer" brings the gentle song an added elegance.
