MORE REVIEWS

“Mesler’s playing is as much influenced by modern classical composers as by jazz greats.” -- Earshot Jazz

“Mesler uses a variety of musical styles -- jazz, new music, classical -- to express a decidedly romantic theme. His works are fresh, sophisticated, and richly textured.” -- Missing Link

“Mesler is obviously quite an accomplished writer and pianist, but his greatest strength may be his ability to shift styles and moods. He is equally adept at playing intense classically-inspired pieces and then different styles of jazz. True music lovers will be hard pressed to not find something enjoyable.” -- The New Times

“Mesler’s piano riffs at times are stunning, played in a frenzied passion. Other times he plunks away on the keys, bemoaning past loves with an appropriately raspy voice. The music commands attention. Powerful.” -- Victory Music

“Blues-by-Rachmaninov . . . Rhapsodic Sturm and Drang . . . It’s like watching a Film Noir Movie without getting the drift of its plot. I was expecting the chandeliers to fall!” – Cadence

"Beautiful, lyrical, romantic, diverse." -- Bainbridge Review

"Evocative, velvety vocalizing. The delicate vocal phrasings are perfect for these lyrics . . . full of whimsy, humor, and irony. Eloquent." -- Sound Choice

"Most classical composers have ceded songwriting to their pop music confreres, who generally stick with tried and true verse-chorus-verse structures. Set to poems by Whitman, Dickinson, and other American poets, Mesler's songs blend the best of both genres, coupling the deft word-setting heard in the 20th century's best art song composers (Poulenc, Rorem) with an immediacy born of pop and Broadway." -- The Stranger
