A New Day
Oscar Pascasio has become known for his colourful, yet sensitive performances across the globe and here on this charming new album entitled, A New Day, he gifts us 10 tracks that will ease the mind and make the day seem that much softer.
The journey to this most charming musical narrative starts with a dance; yes Mermaids Waltz is a sublime and happy beginning, played with a lightness of touch and a sensitivity of thought and mind.
There is much to enjoy on this album, for example the soft but emotive tones of I Miss You, a track and presentation that almost cries on your shoulder, a reflective performance indeed by the artist.
I love my personal Solitude, and here on that very track Pascasio manifests the perfect halcyon moment of solitary bliss, when the only demands that are upon you, is to just enjoy the moment. A track played with such calmness and peace, without doubt one of my favourite offerings from the album.
There are twists and turns on this release that are fascinating, all manner of thoughts, and emotions are catered for here, like the lightness of You Make Me Smile, a track that does exactly what it says on the can, or our last composition entitled Rest, a wonderfully soothing musical narrative, one that without a mere thought will lull the listener into a calming and peace filled reverie.
A New Day by Oscar Pascasio in my view is the best work thus far by the artist; the gentle and tender performances on all 10 pieces are wonderfully warm and blissfully soothing, there are many stand out offerings from the album, but taken overall each and every composition creates a sense of tranquillity and serenity, this is a fine quality for any musician to attain, and as such A New Day by Oscar Pascasio should become a firm favourite with his fans, and all those who adore sublime moments of beautiful solo piano.
