Dancing on the Wind – CD Review by Dyan Garris

From the very opening notes of the graceful Dancing on the Wind, the new solo piano release by Shosana Michel, the soul feels immediately light and free as a bird.

The first track, When Leaves Dance, is perfectly executed, as they all are, with just the right amount of timing, movement, and emotion. Here one can almost imagine exactly what leaves must feel like as they dance on the wind, free to travel wherever they’d like, rather than being haphazardly strewn about without purpose.

Indeed, there is a definitive, flowing purpose to it all. All of the tracks on Dancing in the Wind are like a gentle breeze that prompts us to simply let go of our earthly burdens and allow ourselves to travel with her to where the music leads.

My favorite track on the album is Heather, Roses and Moonlight, which has a distinctly lovely and romantic quality to it. Dream’s Journey, the pre-outro, sets a nice stage for the last track, Quiet Valley. Aptly named, this speaks softly and gently to the spirit with the promise of more even after the ostensible end.

Throughout Dancing on the Wind, which flows like smooth honey, Shoshana paints an evocative and soul soothing soundscape with her melodic and beautifully played compositions. The songs themselves are nicely structured, and yet at the same time Shoshana manages to capture perfectly the completely unrestricted feeling one might have of truly dancing on the wind themselves.

Too, one never feels lost in this musical delight. On the contrary, we know where we are going and are able to enjoy the journey immensely along the way. It’s an interesting juxtaposition and one that makes Dancing on the Wind well worth adding to your solo piano collection. Delightful.
