Product Description

Yanni ~ Tribute

Amazon.com

The album's title is Tribute, but it just as easily could be called Spectacle. Everything here is done on a grand scale, from its ambitious staging areas (the Taj Mahal and China's Forbidden City re-creations) to its large gathering of instrumentalists (more than two dozen) to the histrionics of two impassioned vocalists on a pair of the album's 11 tracks. The only thing missing seems to be the maestro himself--so submerged is the visionary-keyboardist in the mix. The musician showcased most often on Tribute turns out to be energetic violinist Karen Briggs, a familiar figure by now to all who have watched Yanni's global ramblings on television. The compositions and arrangements, it seems, are intended to be the stars as Yanni lives out his Beethoven-like dream sequence. Stylistically, the music ranges from urban smooth jazz to earnest orchestral sweeps. A grand concept, but not an entirely great result. --Terry Wood

Did you ever want to hear music that was simultaneously complex and fun to listen to? And if you want a vacation from the top-40-all-the-same-clone music on the radio today, try Yanni's `Tribute.' I was skeptical at first, but now I'm glad I was open-minded enough to listen; and by doing so I have discovered a respect for Yanni and his music.
Don't Laugh at Yanni -- He's extremely talented and this album shows it. Every single one of his musicians are head-and shoulders above most of the pop-radio [stuff] that we are avalanched with daily. In addition, you will hear pianos, strings, bass, trumpets, some MEAN keyboard playing, and plenty of other non-standard instruments that all blend together to form astounding and pleasant orchestrated music.
One of the album's truly great tunes is "Waltz in 7/8." It is a song played in 7/8 time - far, far, far, above and beyond the synthesized pounding 4/4 or 2/4 heard most of the time today. And wait `til you hear the keyboard solo!
If you want a delightful break from the daily grind of top-40 BS, then give Yanni's 'Tribute' a listen. At the very least you will appreciate the talent of the musicians, and you'll probably find at least one tune on the album that you'll be humming or singing months from now.
It is truly intelligent and beautiful music with the added bonus of catchy melodies.

What's more to say? This album takes you to the corners of the globe and still has room for America and good ol' jazz.
The Tribute concert was an astonishing feat, Yanni being the first person to perform a major musical concert at the Taj Mahal and to illuminate it for the first time in history, and Yanni being the first Western music act to tour China. He even beat the Rolling Stones to it. Seriously, this album resulted from 2 years of planning, 30 flights around the globe, 100s of meetings with government officials and business representatives, and thousands of telephone conversations.
But, the music in this album is an unprecedented feat in its own right. It is dynamic, soothing, foreign, familiar, and energetic all it once. But most of all, it's NEW, but not New Age. Yanni finds himself combining his uncanny ability to create flowing and romantic melodies and mystical world styles. There's also quite a bit of jazz in this. Highlights go to every single track because each one is unique and astonishing in its own way.
I normally don't do track by track analysis, but when I do, you know an album as a winner.
"Deliverance" (written for the people of India) is perhaps more ambitious than Standing in Motion from Live at the Acropolis. Foreign flutes, vocals, and country/jazz violin along with an arabic flare produces a very unique sound. "Nightingale" is (although a bit lacking of energy) unique in that the oriental elements are injected so heavily it. Violin is featured with it along with flute and a short cello solo. "Waltz in 7/8" is more Spanish than Arabic, but unique in the fact that you've got this foreign musical style and hear comes the keyboards giving you pure jazz.

Yanni's album "Tribute" is one of my favorite albums. His other albums are great too, but this particular one holds a special place in my heart. He brings a unique sound to his audience combining full orchestra, vocals, as well as keyboard. His music is relaxing and soothing. Very appealing to the ears. I was most pleased with his work.

Yanni is surely one of THE BEST we have on the face of this Planet right now, and "Tribute" speaks volumes of his immense talent, creativity, and flexibility in using such unconventional Time Signatures as 7/8, with good effect. I have listened to this Album more than just a couple of times, and each time I hear it, I'm stirred with a different emotion...the feeling is just Awesome! "Renegade", "Deliverance", "Dance with a Stranger", "Tribute"....you name it, all of them have been carefully crafted and arranged brilliantly. SO...the bottom line is: If you're a GOOD (Serious in other words) listener of Classical Music, and can "Think" Music (e.g. why would the Composer have had that instrument play that interlude at that moment etc.,) like I do, this Album's just for You!! Yanni is my Favorite for now, and I'm sure he'll be yours too! Cheers!!

This album is a real masterpiece. The sweet, ingenious melodies and heavenly atmospheres you'll find in this work have a very emotional aspect to them. It feels as if the songs speak to the soul in a gentle way, unveiling the deep spiritual longings. The orchestral arrangements are amazing and very tastefully done. I also own Ultimate Yanni and Love Songs, but none of these come close to the originality and superb compositions of Tribute.

This was the first "New Age" album I ever bought. I had no idea what to get... at the time had never heard of Yanni. I just saw the background on the cd cover and liked it so I bought it. Was I in for a suprise. This cd is possibly my favorite out of my entire collection. "Prelude" is my favorite song... how I wish it wasn't the shortest. I loved this song so much I performed a dance to it about six years ago. This album has so much passion, and truly makes you feel as though you are on a journey. I cannot say enough about the true artistry Yanni gives us all.
