ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cobb Bussinger is a composer/arranger/producer presently living in west Texas. This CD, Breath of Life, is the first in a series of solo piano CDs he will be recording in the near future.

Having been in the world of electronic music and other genres for so many years, it has long been his desire to return to his first love, the solo acoustic piano, to record a series of melodic and meditative CDs. He has taken a near-minimalist approach with this recording, and written simple, open melodies and arrangements with hopes of allowing the listener’s mind and body to relax and release tension. Many of the themes and variations are improvised, thus creating a free-flowing movement throughout the CD.

Similar styles are David Lanz, George Winston, Jim Brickman, Debussy, Satie, etc.

Warm and Soothing!
“Breath of Life” is Cobb Bussinger’s first solo piano release and is part of an upcoming series. A professional musician/arranger/composer, Cobb has worked on other people’s music for many years, and did a lot of composing for feature films, documentaries, and commercials in Los Angeles before moving to Northern CA. Working in electronic music for so long left Cobb wishing to return to solo piano and to work on his own music. That need and longing is tangible in this lovely collection of twelve original piano solos. The music is open, melodic, and uncomplicated, and was composed with the purpose of letting the listener’s mind and body relax, releasing tensions. The music is warm and loving, like a musical comforter to snuggle up with and just “be.” As a point of reference, some of the selections remind me a bit of Wayne Gratz (one of my favorite composers for many years), although not many of Gratz’s recordings are without some kind of accompaniment to the piano. Cobb obviously has the chops to play more complex music, but his sensitive touch and emotional resonance are all that are needed to convey a feeling of peaceful serenity.

“Breath of Life” opens with “Sing,” a sweet melody that would probably do well with lyrics but doesn’t need them. It sets the mood for the rest of the album, which maintains a consistent mood from start to finish and yet the individual pieces are distinctive. “Song For Linda” is a gentle, wistful waltz composed for a niece who passed away. “Sladki Mechti Moya Obich (Sweet Dreams My Love)” is a song that has words in the liner notes, but the deep emotion and passion are in the music and show once again the power of the piano to convey wordless messages and vivid images. As the title suggests, “Floating By” is a daydream set to music - gorgeous! The title track is also a favorite, with its simple melody and loving touch. Another beauty is “Hold Dear the Tender Heart,” a haunting piece that is more melancholy than some of the other selections. “Nocturne” reminds me a little bit of some of David Lanz’s quieter pieces. I love the way it effortlessly alternates between major and minor modes.

“Breath of Life” is an outstanding debut, sure to soothe your mind and soul. I highly recommend it and can’t wait to hear Cobb Bussinger’s upcoming series!

beautiful, loving, passionate
I have been using this music during my online shows for meditation and it is stunningly beautiful. Cobb is a wonderful composer and the moment I hear the music it puts me in trance and makes me feel loved. Cobb has a special way of telling a story with his music. I know you will feel the passion in his compositions and piano.
