Product Description

Adult contemporary pianist Dan Siegel has been helping to shape the smooth jazz genre since his recording debut in 1980. Having released several chart-topping records, Siegel now returns with Inside Out, his first all-new studio release in over six years. Inside Out is a collection of ten original tracks featuring special guests Boney James, Jeff Kashiwa, and Brian Bromberg. The recording is characterized by smooth urban grooves, insightful melodies, and mood-setting atmosphere. The recording opens with "Just Like That," a melodic distillation of piano finesse, ambient electronic instruments, and inventive programming. "Inside Out" is ripe with the beauty of percussive syncopation and the sonority one hears from an array of castanets, congas, and other percussion. Siegel's piano grace is surrounded by elaborate string complements that sway the listener into a state of relaxation. On "In Your Eyes," Siegel's exquisite piano playing sets the scene for love with natural and expressive resonance. The addition of flute to this lovely piece provides another layer of romanticism to its musical structure. Each song on this CD tells its own little story with style and believability. Overall, Dan Siegel emerges from the "inside out" to offer his fans a true glimpse of what is perhaps his most essential recording to date.

Review

Almost a quarter century after his debut, Dan Siegel remains one of the kings of smooth-as-silk piano smooth jazz. No computer blips or hip-hop samples here. Siegel is such a mellow mood on his first new studio CD in six years that if you're not completely relaxed after his latest, you should probably get your money back. Saxophonists Boney James and Jeff Kashiwa spice things up in solos and as part of a horn section, but their playing enhances the mellowness instead of taking it outside a comfort zone. None of this is bad, of course. On "Just Like That" and the cover track, Siegel's chirpy playing and smooth backbeat are just what my doc might prescribe during the nadir of a hectic work week. Siegel steps outside his comfort zone a little with "Between the Lines," laying down some tasty organ grooves, but soon slips back into his mellow groove with "To the Point." He ventures into Yanni territory on the final cut, "Gone, But Not Forgotten," a spiritual and uplifting four minutes of music cinema. Siegel is from the old school, a defining member of the smooth jazz movement who still believes in music's healing and calming attributes. In today's loud world, there's still plenty of room for that. --Brian Soergel - All about Jazz
