Soul to Soul
One of the delights of reviewing music is coming across an album so smooth, so laid back and chilled, that it immediately puts you in a good mood, and sets the course for the day ahead to follow in the same suit, this much can certainly be said for the release Soul To Soul by Christophe Goze.
The guitar of Goze is a magical thing indeed, and on this brand new album it casts a musical spell over all that listen to it, this statement can be backed up by simply listening to the first piece on the album entitled The Nightfly (2022 version), never a more serene yet rhythmic piece have I come across so far this year.
There are also many influences within this album that go to make its attraction even further desirable, as an example the lush coloured tapestry that is Passing Time, a composition with a wonderful sensuality and rhythm, or perhaps the funky electronic textures on the piece You & I, the bass on this offering was also utterly sublime.
This is an album that is impossible not to fall head over heels in love with, Goze’s connection to his instrument of musical love, the guitar is nothing short of palpable, and a certain symbiosis of tone can be found here that constantly keeps the listener connected, as on pieces like Bossa Roma with its easy on the senses Chill Out energies, and the haunting reflective genius of Ti Voglio Bene (Revisited), another moment of chilled global jazz to pacify the desires of the always eager good music aficionado.
Soul to Soul by Christophe Goze is a 14 track album of pure class that will bring the listener a veritable cornucopia of musical delights beyond what you may have ever thought possible, from its wonderfully fluent Jazz ethics, mixed with a global chilled vibrancy, here is an album that demands to be listened to in the most charming ways possible, and one received this timeless collection of smooth and persuasive compositions, will stay within your heart forever.
