Keyboardist Chris Geith has made a name for
himself in the smooth jazz world with albums like
Timeless World (2007), Island Of A Thousand Dreams
(2010), Chasing Rainbows (2014) and Well Tempered Love
(2016). His newest album Invisible Reality (2021) will be
released this month on all digital platforms.
The new album is completely written, performed and produced by Chris.
Guest musician on one song is saxophonist Vincent Ingala. Opener of
the album is the title song. A high-energy piece driven by syncopated
drums forms the backbone of the catchy melody.
The title already hints at it. Whispers In The Night is the
musical guideline for a nocturnal excursion. Alive is the
hopefully desirable state after the long quarantine in pandemic times.
A harmonic melody at peace with a simple structure. The contemplative
piece Love Anchors the Soul features Vincent Ingala on

Richard Clayderman. Playa Del Sol has a nice Bossa Nova swing
with a harmony-laden theme. What if offers a fresh
combination of piano and sax in the lead. Save The Forest
weaves together a sensitive melody with a serious environmental
Dawn of the Heroes recalls the music
period of the 80s with the ravishing Synth Pop in the style of OMD and
Pet Shop Boys. This style of music is also associated with the
following Now More Than Ever with the conclusion spiced with
a sophisticated refinement of improvisation. Chris celebrates his
eloquent and meaningful piano play on a A Brighter Day in
crystalline beauty. The contemplative Another Spring Will Come
gives the album a worthy ending.
Chris Geith's album Invisible Reality is for all lovers of
beautiful melodies who want to enjoy a reflective
evening coupled with listening pleasure.
