This CD is instrumental only (no vocals). The similarities, in regard to it sounding like Kansas, pertains to the musical content, not the vocal content. Basically, if you mixed Mannheim Steamroller and David Arkenstone with Kansas, then took out the vocals, you would get "A Fork In The Road".
I would have to say the musical signature of this composer is his ability to layer multiple instruments into one distinctive sound. As you listen to his music your ears will just accept what you are hearing. But, if you listen very closely you will be able to discern all that is happening. It is incredible how many parts are interacting with others, yet it doesn’t sound cluttered. Instead, his techniques allow all of the instruments to work effortlessly and intelligently with one another while maintaining the song’s own distinctive melody.
Every one of the songs on this CD has its own identity and each one is instantly recognizable. All too often with instrumental music these days, after awhile all the songs start to sound the same. Not so with this CD. These songs all tell a story while carrying you through the composition. Each one can provoke its own reaction, thought and emotion. The energy never fades and is consistent throughout the entire CD.
