YANNI - Truth of Touch Review & Giveaway

Yanni is back with a new CD, Truth of Touch.  This is Yanni's first release in eight years and it's more in keeping with his original instrumental style of music.  To be honest I haven't heard Yanni in years.  In the 90's I remember purchasing his music because it was innovative and new.  I loved the new age, instrumental style music that was calming.  I'm not a one music genre type of gal.  While I still think he is relative, this isn't something I would listen to every day.  With that said, it is the perfect background music for a dinner party or maybe a spa treatment.   

This is Yanni's first instrumental release of original compositions in over eight years and is a return to the genre Yanni helped create and advance. “I work the rhythms in this album,” explains Yanni about the new material. “There is a beautiful complexity in these rhythms, a new sound design. I think the melodic content is very strong and very memorable. I was having fun with this album and that’s going to become apparent.”

There are a few vocals on this cd.  I have no doubt that all Yanni fans will really enjoy this CD.  

This new CD gives us 15 brand new tracks:
  1. Truth of Touch
  2. Echo of a Dream
  3. Seasons
  4. Voyage
  5. Flash of Color
  6. Vertigo
  7. Nine
  8. Can’t Wait
  9. Guilty Pleasure
  10. O Luce Che Brilla Nell’ Oscurit√†
  11. I’m So
  12. Long Way Home
  13. Yanni & Arturo
  14. Mist of a Kiss 
  15. Secret
My favorite songs were Voyage, O Luce Che Brilla Nell' Oscurita, and Echo of a Dream.
