I chose a five star rating because this album is the perfect, phenomenal follow up to Elew Rockjazz Vol. 1. Elew's music has a way of transporting you right into the performance. You can feel his passion when he plays, and it's just mesmerizing. I personally find it calming to hear his music because it sounds so effortless--and also familiar, because he seems to draw his inspiration from existing source material. If you enjoy piano, jazz, and rock, then this album is for you. He is the only one playing on the entire album--and it needs nothing else.

The only thing I wish could be different about the album is that it could somehow bring Elew into your home to perform live every time you wished to hear it. I've seen Elew in concert twice, and nothing beats his live performances. He puts so much into them that it’s almost like he gives his own soul to every performance to make it just live. The two times I saw him, he was the opening act for Josh Groban (back in 2011). It’s the ONLY time I’ve ever paid attention to an opening act, and the only time I’ve ever bought merchandise for an opening act. Elew is his own headliner, as far as I’m concerned. I only wish he toured more to places other than the east coast or Los Angeles. Utah often times gets forgotten by many artists.

I only hope that on future albums, there will be more original compositions from Elew. He draws largely from source material as inspiration, when clearly you can tell he has the ability to tell his own story without weaving in anyone else’s work. It’s gorgeous as it is and helps you to relate to his music on a whole other level—but I look forward to the day when I get to hear his own work entirely.

Far be it from me to pull up a purist soapbox on this issue; rather, I'd suggest that this album is a largely light-weight and cynical attempt to achieve greater success in some sort of perceived crossover market.

While it certainly worked for Liberace and Andrea Bocelli in the Classical-Pop vein, the musical results of these sorts of attempts are almost uniformly disappointing and bland.

This is no exception - you'd do better sticking with Bad Plus, Robert Glasper, Theo Bleckmann, James Blood Ulmer, Medeski Martin and Wood, 70s-era Miles, Headhunters, Jim Black's Alasnoaxis, Wallace Roney, the WSQ, Chris Thile, Jason Moran, etc etc. The list is long and extensive of more successful attempts at the fusing of jazz and pop, and well worth perusing.
