Narada Decade: The Anniversary Collection


Other albums by

Narada Decade: The Anniversary Collection celebrates the label's tenth year with two discs' worth of contemporary instrumentals. The tone of the set is definitely low-key, but rarely does it stray into the more synthesizer-heavy side of things. Instead, it does its talking with taste and texture, employing lots of piano and spare instrumentation. Richard Souther's "The Long Riders" builds a surging melody from synths, while David Lanz "Leaves on the Seine" is a contemplative piano piece that's as quiet and drifting as its title suggests. Things get a little busy toward the end of disc two; though the pieces from Ralf Illenberger and Hans Zimmer are ambitious, they're a bit too boisterous for this collection, which stays in one gear -- slow and steady -- for almost its entire duration. Though everything on this set has been previously released, fans of Narada or any of its artists might enjoy having the songs in one convenient location. ~ Johnny Loftus
