LE JARDIN 

This song is soothing.

It touches the soul and takes away feelings of stress and negativity.

Peace of mind, peace of the spirit … incredible to feel.

Hope you enjoy it.

Kevin Kern is one of my favorite New Age musicians.

“My whole life, thus far, has been a celebration of that unique bond I have felt with my favorite musical instrument and ‘best friend’.  The melodies I have written are a testament to that friendship.”

~ Steinway Artist and Composer, Kevin Kern

Kevin Kern (born Kevin Lark Gibbs on December 22, 1958) is an American pianist, composer and recording artist of New Age music.

He was born in Detroit, Michigan. He is now generally recognized as a representative of the New Age style. Born legally blind, Kern is aided in studio by SONAR’s accessibility and Dancing Dots’ assistive music technologies for the vision impaired.

Kevin was found playing “Silent Night” on the piano at 18 months of age. He started learning the piano regularly at 4 and began writing music at 8. At 14, he put on performances with the music group he founded called “The Well-Tempered Clavichord“.

Despite his legal blindness since birth, he was still determined to be a pianist.

INSPIRATO

Elevation of the human spirit to a higher level of awareness, feeling and empowerment. 

MusicB

I must confess that I am an ardent, die-hard Yanni fan. It all started when I, by chance, caught that Oprah show which featured Linda Evans where Yanni was introduced to the huge TV audience. I was one of them and, like Linda, was mesmerized by this dark-haired, beautiful, perfect man. And to top it off, he was a musician who played New Age music.

It was love at first sight, like Linda. Since then, I started buying his music CDs, his concert DVDs and have managed to see him live a few times. 

I knew I had to buy the newly released CD. Like a fan, I always keep track of his music and find no fault to what he does. Some may but I don’t! In my eyes, he does no wrong.

Inspirato is Yanni’s seventeenth studio album, released in 2014.

To create the album, Yanni collaborated with opera tenor Plácido Domingo and producer Ric Wake to select distinguished vocalists to perform songs that Yanni had previously released over his career.

~Content and production~~

The album’s tracks are based on selected songs from throughout Yanni’s career, but have newly-created lyrics sung by distinguished vocalists having opera backgrounds. The dominant language of the album’s lyrics is Italian. The album, with its lyrical and classical elements, was characterized as reflecting a radical change in Yanni’s style. Despite the album’s use of opera singers, Yanni emphasized the album was “not opera.”

Yanni collaborated with tenor Plácido Domingo and producer Ric Wake to match Yanni’s songs to the respective vocalists. In part because of the distinguished vocalists’ schedules, the project is said to have required four years to complete.
