ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A bit more jazzy than his earlier "Enchanted River", the mood of the album is peaceful, warm and relaxed. Other than the sound of a popping cork and pouring champagne at the beginning of the CD, there is no sound effects this time-just pure, soulful piano music that will calm, cheer and soothe. Mazerand's effortless and elegant playing style hints at maturity and experience and he has obviously played for a lot of romantic, candlelit dinners!"
Kathy Parsons, Piano Solo Publications
Says Serge:
"Cheers has been inspired by wine, yes! I mean no, I wasn't drunk! I simply had dinner with my wife at the wonderful bistro of the Summerhill winery in the Okanagan and the powerful combination of great wine, superb food and beautiful setting along the Okanagan lake gave me the urge to create music about wine and celebration."
After all, being born in France where wine is part of the culture-- so much so, that you are given a glass of Bordeaux in hospitals to help you get better!!-- it was only a matter of time before I was going to record something winey!"

"Effervescence", the first track, is about sparkling wine and bubbles swirling in the glass..."Harvest Moon" is depicting in music the ripening vines in a fall night, waiting to be picked.

The album sounds a little jazzy, nothing really too swingy but perfect, in my own view, to accompany great food and fine wines. In other words, a great companion to help you celebrate in style.
I hope you'll enjoy it.
Cheers!

A Pianistic Celebration of Fine Wine
“Cheers!” is a collection of twelve original solo piano compositions and improvisations by Serge Mazerand that celebrate wine. A bit more jazzy than his earlier “Enchanted River,” the mood of the album is peaceful, warm, and relaxed. Other than the sound of a popping cork and pouring champagne at the beginning of the CD, there are no sound effects this time - just pure, soulful piano music that will calm, cheer, and soothe. Mazerand’s effortless and elegant playing style hints at maturity and experience, and he has obviously played for a lot of romantic, candlelit dinners.

“Cheers!” opens with the aforementioned popping champagne cork and a piece appropriately titled “Effervescence.” Sparkling and joyful, Mazerand’s hands dance all over the piano keys. “By Candlelight” slows to a warm, sensuous tempo, and paints a scene of romance. “Harvest Moon” has an easy, graceful elegance that I really like. Unhurried and unstructured, it is a beautiful essence. “In a Merlot Mood” is another favorite. Smooth and velvety, and oh so mellow. Yum! “Wine Tears” is passionate, melancholy, and a bit darker than most of the other pieces - poignant and touching. “Time in a Bottle” isn’t a cover of the Jim Croce classic, but a reflective wish that we could age as well as some fine wines do. Pensive and full of grace, it’s a lovely close to an impressive salute to wine and its magic. Enjoy!
