CD REVIEW: Dan Rowe – Wide Open Skies
By Ben Ohmart - 01/21/2003 - 04:42 PM EST

Artist: Dan Rowe
Album: Wide Open Skies
CD Review: Dan Rowe may not have the fancy cd packaging of major labels or worry too much about dazzling us with a lot of florid techniques on the keyboard, but this piano man does a lot for mood and fluency of emotions. Give him a musical notion and a real (not synth) set of ivories to try ‘er out on, and you’ve got a great, though too short, 40 minute album on which you can base your whole day.

Need to scrub that floor? No problem, put the Rowe on. Need to finally write those Thank You cards in response to Christmas? Here’s the soundtrack for it. Need to light that pipe and stare out at the cold winds blowing for a bit? You couldn’t pick a better line up than:

Rising Moon
Samba for Sam
Where the Heart Follows
Wide Open Skies
At First Light
Life Pulse
Steps of Secrets
Song for Antonio
50 Years On
Between the Miles

It’s gentle, soothing instrumental fare for the humble hearted. Barenaked Ladies and Megadeath heads need not apply for this peace.
