Editorial Reviews

While finding peaceful solitude in Saratoga and discovering fresh inspiration, the 5-time Grammy-nominated composer/ pianist wrote two new unique pieces unlike any he had done before. These became the foundation for the global concept behind this stirring and provocative new set. The vibe on Earthglow also draws other influences: from Chick Corea/Herbie Hancock, Black Eyed Peas to cool percussion, old school soul-jazz & exotic Brazilian beats.

David Benoit has the rare talent to compose musically-complex songs that are still easy on the ear of the average "smooth jazz" listener. His latest album, EarthGlow comes off the heels of Heroes, which impressively blended a variety of musical styles with jazz. But if Heroes (especially the second half of the album) was too jazzy for you, you'll be happy to know that David has returned to his more conventional sound on EarthGlow.

There are more synthesized sounds on this album than on David's past few albums, as he says he wanted create some new sounds by experimenting a little. Just don't expect any ground-breaking experimentation (as the product description would have you believe). David's minor experimentation does succeed in being refreshing - it even allows him to tap into the grooves of other quality keyboardists. For example, Will's Chill sounds like something you could imagine Bob Baldwin playing (although, interestingly, David said it was inspired by the rapper/producer Will.i.am), and Straightaway sounds like something Gregg Karukas might play. David even copies himself a little - Sneaky As a Cat is very similar in style to a few tracks from David's 2006 release, Full Circle.

My favorite tracks are New Creation, which is played with a genuine and refreshing sense of urgency (without sounding too fast, which is more difficult to accomplish than many people realize) and Freedom at Midnight (The Schroeder Variations). Botswana Bossa Nova is interesting as well. Unbelievable is slightly forgettable, but all other tracks are solid and represent a diverse array of tempos and musical textures.

The talents of contemporary jazz master David Benoit shine brightly on this disc, which is cut inside to outside with one radiant track after another. Here, as always, Benoit delivers on that unique ability of his to induce auditory euphoria by crafting catchy, optimistic, piano-driven tunes with an unmistakeable Americana style while, perhaps more on this release than on others, incorporating world music influences. Earthglow shimmers.

I commend each and every track to your willing ears, but my favorites are: "Unbelievable" (an inspiring melodic theme, roomy bass line; "New Creation" (lots of energy, sweet solo work on piano/rhodes); "Sneaky as a Cat" (chilled vibe, Latin textures with flute); "Downtime" (jazz trio, introspective, just great song writing); "Brownie's Gone" (a bit of a tear-jerker, achingly beautiful). Don't miss the solo work on "Freedom at Midnight" starting at 3:57. It's Benoit-some!

My commendations to David Benoit and the recording engineers who captured the sound of his piano so well.

I learned about David Benoit from a review of his first album, Freedom at Midnight, in the old Washington Times paper back about 1984. I was intrigued and went out and bought the CD, and have been a fan ever since. We have 6 or 7 of his albums now (we're still missing a few). This album Earthglow was a request from my teenage daughter for her birthday, and she loves it. We take it with us on car trips for everyone to hear, and she listens to it on her own in her room. The music is fun and uplifting, and we're glad to have it.

David Benoit simply does more than just play piano. He crafts a theme with soul and style. It sounds good, but it feels good too, like the way good jazz piano is supposed to be played. Earthglow is another excellent example of contemporary jazz played with respect and skill. Well worth the download!

If bland is to your liking then this CD is for you .Where is the energy in all the previous recordings , Botswana is too reminiscent of '' The In Crowd ''
Will's Chill is the only piece that appeals and shows some motion , all the rest are just too colorless and boring . This doesn't mean that I'm still not a Benoit fan , as I have most of every CD he has put out . My first encounter with his music was at Christmas time in the 80's when i heard ''Carol of the Bells'' on my car radio . When the drums picked up the tempo I knew I finally had someone that could put his energy into his work , and then started my collection of Benoit's work . Being disappointed with one CD doesn't mean I will stop being a fan , I'm just unsatisfied with this latest offering . Benoit is still the best I've heard .

Excellent! I can listen to this all day, over and over. Finally after about the 15th time, I do change to something else. Then, later, I put it back on. Very relaxing, yet at the same time, not boring.

This is what you have been waiting for! David Benoit and his Steinway are great to begin with but He gives all you wanted and more. EarthGlow steps out with new instruments and makes the wait and for the next bar feeling like the night before Christmas when you were a kid,Then it comes and a smile comes to your face. UNBELIEVABLE and EASY DAY are perfect examples of what I'm talking about. I just don't understand why he isn't more known than he is?

A great CD with enticing mix of songs. I enjoy it more as smooth jazz rather than New Age. Benoit is always entertaining and this one does not disappoint.
