Curtis Macdonald’s signature style of memorable lyrical piano melodies over transparent electronic arrangements is present more then ever on his 17th CMMP CD release, “When Dreams Come True”.
A contemporary instrumental collection that blends New Age, Jazz, and Pop takes the listener on a journey into the artist’s personal experiences and emotions. A flowing narrative of moderately paced rhythmic ballades expresses the moments of love and relationship, the melancholy of heartbreak and loss and the beauty of serene landscapes.
You can hear the passion of the artist on such tracks as “Holder of my Heart” and “We Have Each Other”, the tranquility of “Avalon” and “Through a Painter’s Eyes” and the inspiration and hope of “No Place like Home” and the title track “When Dreams Come True”. Two re-mixed fan favorites, “Diamonds in the Night Sky” and “Always Remember” round out the 12 Song CD and MP3 download album. The album was mixed by Grammy nominated mixer Tony Ugval (Lady Gaga).
“When Dreams Come True” is a beautiful and fresh listening experience from beginning to end. Perfect for those moments of relaxation and reflective thought.
