Review of Scott Cossu new album ‘Safe in Your Arms’
This music captures you from the first chords. The piano of Scott Cossu is very tuneful and, at the same time, powerful. All arrangements were recorded with perfectionism and elegance. Compositions of the album “Safe in Your Arms” are penetrated with a great optimism and they lift your spirit.
Incredible freshness is felt in the music of Scott Cossu. Refined guitar of Van Manakas along with gentle Alto flute of Ann Lindquist and masterfully played Bass, Concert flutes and a little harmonica of John Croarkin create a unique ambience of friendliness and openness to this world.
The music of the album “Safe in Your Arms” reminds me of the golden days of legendary Windham Hill Records and this is not by accident. Scott Cossu is a renowned artist, he was in the forefront of the New Age music movement when it began just over thirty years ago. He was one of the first Windham Hill artists to join founder Will Ackerman and Alex de Grassi on their new label and had success from the start.
Now Scott returns with terrific collection of new compositions, along with new versions of cherished tunes that he had recorded during the nineteen years the artist was on the Windham Hill Record label. I would like to note that meditativeness is inherent in the music of Scott Cossu. It takes you to a place where all sounds die away and only silence is present. It brings a big joy into your heart. You will return with healed soul, clear mind and you will be sure that this world can bring you only the better.
Listen to this unique album and fill your soul with love and light. Just feel as this Universe wants to enlighten you…
