Multi-instrumentalist Konstantin Klashtorni,
best known as the
most active musician in the Smooth Jazz genre, hadn't
appeared in months. Not until September of this year did the
relief news come, a new album is released. Considering his
huge total works, the question arose, in which section will
the album be released?
Chillaxing Jazz KolleKtion presents
Groove Jazz N Chill #7. That's called constancy.
Exclusively composed and recorded by Konstantin himself. He
also manufactures and distributes his albums and thus
demonstrates his economic independence as a creative artist.
Memories of Us opens the album with a soft breeze
of melody and a nicely balance of keys and sax. The swelling
and decaying wave-tone provides an atmospheric basis for the
use of piano and saxophone. Changing Seasons
emphasizes a harmonious sonic collage of different sounds,
which is very close to the spherical sounds of New Age
Fade into the Sunset wafts with known keyboard
vibrations to which acoustic guitar and saxophone add
accents. Ocean Serenity reminds a little of the
music of Eric Serra (Le Grand Bleu).
It's a Better World with U is somewhat different
from the atmospheric collages of the other pieces, as it
follows a thoroughly appealing melody. Notions
sinks again into a mélange of sound formations that
stimulate the reverie. Riding on a Cloud follows
this style seamlessly.
The Quiet Lakes shines with a sophisticated
arrangement of the finest keyboard sounds that invite you to
relax. Anywhere with You presents flute and strings
as platform on which a lonesome sax creates a dreamy melody.
Full Moon Tonight does justice to the title with a
dreamlike trumpet that loses in piano themes and flute
whispering. The Magic in You trickles with light
guitar chords over the theme of the romantic approach.
Groove Jazz N Chill #7 does not claim to bring the
listener closer to top performances of a musical nature. The
music serves to relax and unwind, no more and no less.
