Review of Country Airs submitted on 14th November 2003
Times may have been hard for Rick when this album was recorded but you would never have guessed it from sense of peace and tranquility that comes from these pieces of music. Forget the "New Age" tag that will probably deter a lot of people from buying this - this is superb solo piano music. No flash or bombast here - just Rick and a Grand Piano. The result is charming and peaceful - yet it reamins an involving collection of music unlike the usual insipid,Muzak wallpaper that you normally find in "New Age". Some of Rick's undoubted spirituality seems to shine through here too and this really is a record that you will find will refreshing and uplifting. It always makes me feel good! If you have not heard any of Ricks Piano works this is a superb place to start. Give yourself a treat and track this down You will not be disappointed.
