Thank You, Yes! By Philip Howard


Thank You, Yes!

This flourishing new single from pianist Philip Howard has an exciting new energy about its construction, but is also multi-faceted and contains a truly thoughtful performance by the artist.

Thank You, Yes! is the title and that and the art work for the composition heavily suggests a marriage or engagement of a couple. This new single seems to draw its motif and moods from that, the multi-faceted nature is the arrangement of the composition, one that thankfully lasts well over 4 minutes in duration.

The slow build is like the apprehensive moment of asking for that aforementioned partnership. The performance gets bolder and more fluent as a confidence unfurls, and literally a David Lanz styled presentation can be found in the middle section of this deeply moving and colourful creation.

The latter half of the single manifests a calm and soothing content, perhaps one of contentment and happiness, and then an almost meditative energy flows into the scene, one that creates a further symbiotic partnership of tone and timbre which builds into a slow but happy crescendo.

I truly don’t believe I have heard so much created in one solo piano single before, and as such it literally deserves to be a big hit on the singles chart, and in the hearts and minds of piano fans across our beautiful globe.
