ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jon Dahlander can’t walk by a piano. He has to play it. It’s why he’s been kicked out of countless hotel lobbies, bars and restaurants throughout his life.
“To me, every piano has a story--where it was made, who made it, the kind of shape it’s in, who played it before and what it sounds like now, particularly with one of my songs,” says Jon. “So, if I see a lonely piano, I have to play it. It’s like finding a new friend with a common interest.”
It’s why Jon’s series of piano solos isn’t morose or mundane. These are pieces of music that bask in the joy of being played.
In 1995, Jon signed on with Dallas-based Carpe Diem Records and his debut was the label’s fastest-ever selling debut.
1997 brought the release of Piano Landscapes v.2, a CD inspired by a trip Jon took to Europe after studying the piano works of Maurice Ravel and Erik Satie.
V.3 was released one week before Jon and his wife Heidi gave birth to a special needs child named Jared, effectively sidelining his recording career for a few years.
Since then, while he has not recorded any new music, Jon has played in some of the top venues in the Dallas area, including the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Sammons Center, where he headlined a concert for a Dallas arts organization called Inspirata.
In 2006, Jon is lending new piano material to a project called Luminas, which is designed to assist cancer patients through the use of guided imagery.
“I know all about the healing power of music,” says Jon. “One of the times when our son was in the ICU of the hospital, a family whose child was dying asked to borrow one of my CDs. To walk by later and hear that my music was helping ease their pain during the most difficult of hours makes every ounce of energy I’ve ever spent with the piano worth it. If my music can help others, then that’s the icing on the cake.”

Every body might agree with me that Jon Dahlander is a great musician and artist, but I think his music's greatest point is 'its therapeutic power'. I felt his music is so comfortably vibrates my eardrum with its simple and perfect harmony and melody, and they soon so smoothly melts into my mind. His songs can relieve my soul from daily stresses, everytime. His songs are not complex to be understood, more to say, do not require to be because they will synchlonize with our emotions and(but) never make us feel lonly, missing and boring. That's really like the titles: many images of beautiful and holly landscapes of nature.
Thank you to read my review in spite of my poor english.
