Instrumental Classical-New Age Review: Summer Swee-Singh & the Crazy 88-Self Titled

Release Date: June 21, 2016
Label: Independent

Summer Swee-Singh is veteran performer that presents a polished sound in each track on her latest self-titled release Summer Swee-Singh & the Crazy 88.

Her sound resonates with a self-assurance and gracefulness that instantly attracts you and vitalizes your senses, or revitalizes, whatever your need may be. For me it usually is the batteries that need to be recharged in most cases. It always is a good time to listen to music like this for that reason alone.

Summer reminds me of a proud and confident solo pianist that takes the stage and holds the audience in complete silence and awe until she stops playing. It is only then when the audience releases its energy with a loud roar of approval. The music is simplistic and it holds you spellbound like a religious ceremony, the people come to the church of music to pay tribute to the one who is the object of their affection. That may sound just a bit over top however it is only an analogy, a thought or parallel if you will.

Some of the tracks are heavily influenced by classical that develop into new age and others have bits of rolling piano that sound more like a movie soundtrack injected with elements of jazz such as “Apples and Tea.” Then there are stunning and colorful compositions like “Berkeley.” Anyone who knows music can figure out from whence the title of that track came. 

For my ears and overall experience the way this music was recorded, its eclectic and simplistic style, all fit together like a puzzle you know by heart. All the pieces just fall right into place. Everything you are hearing was meant for you the very moment you are hearing it. It made me feel that way. It is all as pure as a hot spring or freshy fallen snow at the highest peak of a mountain. It is musical perfection in progress, I would not change a thing.

5/5 Stars
