The Melodies Inside
Larry Kenzal's album of original compositions is a captivating blend of classical piano skills and modern musical sensibilities. Showy without ever showing off, Kenzal's playing is beautiful in its precision, lyricism, and minimalism. He makes deft use of the sustain peddles on songs like Air, and creates lush atmospheres that suggest dreamy longing on tracks like Summer and Rain.
A quiet album that seems perfectly suited for moments of reflection, From Within seems to tell stories of hope and yearning.
