A proud performance that will entertain and soothe your day
Today had been an emotional day for us both here, and sadly not in a good way, so as I sat to write a review for this album, I hoped it would transport me somewhere musically that was calming and somewhat uplifting, a little solace in music perhaps, I can state now I got that and much more, and now I invite you, on this sojourn through the solo piano realm with Joseph Nimoh.
Conversations On Piano is a beautiful album and a much need sanctuary on this day of mixed emotions for me, track one Anything For You, lifted me into a world of utter peace, while the following charming piano narrative entitled Beautiful Melody took me back to 2010 and Atlanta Hartsfield Airport, where I sat for some seven hours waiting for my plane home and listening to a piano being played in the large bar area, that seemed to have a similar resonance to this track, smooth, a little jazzy, but timeless to listen to.
I used to hate getting up early at the break of day to go to work, but once out of the house it usually transformed into a positive experience, as the clarity and cleanness of this time of day was always pristine in its presentation, a bit like this piece from the artist called Morning Dew.
The track Conversations picks up the tempo and with a skip in the step we can thoroughly enjoy the gifted performance that has a little emotional hint to it as well.
We now move gently into welcoming arms of this next composition called Distant Land, this would be a favourite of mine, Nimoh creates a sense of ambience here that is simply sublime.
Don’t Be Discouraged is up next; this is that moment of being uplifted I talked about much earlier. Gentle and confident, this is a piece that would lift the spirits of any dull day.
I like listening to short form compositions; it is interesting for me to see just how much the artist can paint into such a short time scale, on Happy Ending, we have a track that literally glistens with a sun kissed reverie and all in around the 80 second mark!
His Plans Are Sure touches a little deeper pool in this musical lake entitled Conversations On Piano. The energies here are moving yes, but also with a sense of aged wisdom laid into the arrangement, one with such style and cleverness.
The sun now streams in through my studio window, a few clouds drift past to say hello as I move into the next piece called Like Yesterday. For a moment I was transported back through the years to new age performers like Mike Rowland and David Sun, as we are gifted a wonderfully tranquil and quite beautiful healing opus.
Now we knock at the door of the shortest piece off the release called Peaceful Melody. Nimoh delivers us a soothing narrative of solo piano that manifests a calm motif and one that creates a segway into the composition called Silent Prayers. This is a really sparkling performance and one that has a lush night time feeling to its arrangement, but a charming moment of musical magic can be spent here in the company of this amazing song.
As we move ever deeper into the darker layers of this dimension of solo piano, we come across a piece called Solitude. Once more the ambience that Nimoh has created here is vast, but also manifested with a gentleness that glows like a beacon in the night.
Sunday mornings are always a rich tapestry on which you will find many opportunities to come across musical ideas. Nimoh has done just that with this quite brilliant piece called Sunday Morning Pondering, and this Sunday I am going to feature this in my meditative musings on my balcony, with a cup of tea and watching the sun beams bounce across the cadence of the day.
There is always a Time For Change, and on the track with that title, you can feel the honesty and integrity in the arrangement, a performance played from the heart to the heart, in a moment of solo piano that was deeply felt.
The short form piece Where We Are is now upon us, and carries on the tranquil and serene nature of this album with ease, one that allows us to drift perfectly into the following arrangement entitled Who’s There, which in fact has a layer of emotion in it that is very touching indeed, one played with such sensitivity and tenderness.
The depth of tone in this next offering is wonderful and again warm to hear and feel all around you and of course called Not Alone. In a similar way to the earlier I Am With You track, this mirrors the energy of that composition and delivers a piece of mutual musical kindness; I could also hear myself singing lyrics to this as well.
We are fast approaching the end of the album, and Searching For Answers is up now, the performance here is a little more up tempo and has an energy of the search perfectly, the faster pace allows for a little hint of apprehension as the seeking begins.
The penultimate piece on the album is up now, on this next song you will find a soothing layer of warmth; the track is called I Am With You. The performance here is so reassuring and resembles an arm around the shoulder, in the musical sense of things.
We finish though with a masterful composition called Who Will Go. Joseph Nimoh does himself proud here by leaving this splendid collection of solo piano works with the most confident and fluent composition off the release, one has to say what a stunningly fluent way to end the album with indeed.
Conversations On Piano by Joseph Nimoh, is an album that has all the tranquil and confident hallmarks of being a memorable solo piano album for decades. Nimoh’s masterful and proud performances will entertain you, sooth your day or maybe like me, make your afternoon a little brighter and fulfilled, it is an album that you will revel in and be able to ease back and float in the smoothness of each pristine performance with a sublime ease.

Beautifully embodies a supernal essence within its intimately personal compositi
Joseph Nimoh is a Ghana-born pianist and composer who began playing piano at age 11 in his mother’s church. In addition to having studied piano performance at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, Nimoh also served as pianist and music director for numerous churches in the New England area.

After having had the pleasure of listening to Nimoh’s latest album entitled Conversations on Piano, it was immediately evident that those inspirational music roots are an integral part of his impressively refined and lovely sound. Comprised of twenty original solo piano compositions spanning almost an hour of simplistic authentic beauty, Conversations on Piano effortlessly weaves elements of jazz, gospel and classical music among its divinely-inspired compositions.

“Anything for You” serves as a beautiful opener with its moderately-paced melody gently played in the mid-range. A defining attribute of Nimoh’s music is the warmly personal and down-to-earth vibe that it conveys, which seems to speak directly to the listener’s inner thoughts and feelings. Although dynamic at times with often unpredictable transitions, Nimoh’s compositions never venture into the ornately bombastic, nor do they convey that of a grand stage performance. Rather, one might envision themselves cozily nestled in an upscale piano lounge or relaxing comfortably by the fireplace at home while listening. Likewise, Nimoh possesses a seemingly natural gift for smoothly transitioning among varying moods and tempos – even within the same composition) – and there’s a subtly improvised quality to his melodies, as they typically avoid following along a narrowly predictable path.

Softer pieces like “Morning Dew” perfectly capture the quiet calm of an early morning mist with its sparser notes perfectly placed among thoughtful pauses throughout. In subtle contrast, Nimoh lends a delicate force to “Conversations”, a bold yet tender composition that stands out as one of the album’s most melodically flowing and memorably engaging. Encouraging song titles such as “Don’t Be Discouraged”, “His Plans are Sure”, “Time for Change”, “Searching for Answers” and “I Am With You” aptly reflect a heavenly guidance that’s undeniably infused in Nimoh’s elegant compositions, which seemingly serve as gentle reminders of faith, hope and fortitude.

Beautifully embodying a supernal essence within its intimately personal compositions, Conversations on Piano is a most-fitting companion for prayer, reflection or relaxation, while simultaneously possessing a revitalizing quality that is sure to lift the spirits and pacify the mind!

A wonderful and thought-provoking album from start to finish.
The definition of instrumental music is “a musical composition or recording without lyrics, or singing”. Listening to Joseph Nimoh’s new album “Conversations On Piano” I’m no longer sure if this definition is accurate. The album is totally instrumental, yet Nimoh is able to make the melodies reflect the mood and expression of many interesting conversations. In other words; the piano is talking. Nimoh’s new release is a wonderful and thought-provoking album from start to finish.

Joseph Nimoh was born and raised in Ghana. He began playing piano at age 11 at his mom’s church. He later studied piano performance at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, and has released a total of five albums. Previous albums are “Quite Time in His Presence”, “Living Waters”, “Reflections” and “Piano Hymns”.

Anything For You
The album opener is called “Anything For You”. The gentle melody instantly connects with the listener. I love the hint of melancholy and the fact that a conversation where the topic is “anything for you” sounds just like this. There’s not a problem in the world, and everything will be arranged. It is a nice and warm love song.

Next piece is “Beautiful Melody”. I’m happy to report that the title truly fits the song. George Winston or David Lanz couldn’t have done it any better. Another beautiful melody is “Morning Dew”. You can almost smell and feel the freshness of the morning. Nimoh’s compositions are filled with life and colors.

Distant Land
“Conversations” is a key track; in a way it binds the album together. It is a fast and positive piece, imitating the atmosphere of an enthusiastic conversation between good friends. I could put on repeat all day. It is totally unpretentious and bright. In other words; pure solo piano heaven. Brilliant! “Distant Land” is an interesting shift in mood, a musical palate cleanser. “Don’t Be Discouraged”, “Happy Ending” and “His Plans Are Sure” take us back on a more positive – and talkative – track.

Above I have focused on the “piano conversations”, but Nimoh has some dreamy and contemplative pieces in store for us too; “Like Yesterday”, “Peaceful Melody” and “Silent Prayers” are such songs. You just have to close your eyes, and the music will take you on a journey of the mind. “Sunday Morning Pondering”too has this wonderful vibe. My favorite song on the album is “Solitude”. It has a simple, chord-based style. The melody itself is breathtakingly beautiful, it is a small masterpiece. Bravo! But don’t take my word for it; just listen to it in the above player!

Who’s There
Nimoh has delivered a very well-balanced album. “Time For Change” describes the slow movements towards a better tomorrow. The same is perhaps true of the short “Where We Are”. The conversational style is back with “Who’s There?” and “Not Alone”.

I very much enjoy the ending of the album. The last three songs sum up everything that’s great about “Conversations On Piano”; the warm and positive “Searching For Answers”, then the emotionally charged “I’m With You” and “Who Will Go”. At this stage pushing the replay button seems like a great idea.

In conclusion: “Conversations On Piano” by Joseph Nimoh is a rock-solid release. It is great both for active listening and as background music. Without lyrics or a vocal Nimoh is able to describe the atmosphere and spirit of many memorable conversations. The feeling of being in good company, where anything can be discussed, is present from start to finish. That is a major accomplishment. Joseph Nimoh truly is an artist to follow in 2019; He is one of the new stars in New Age music. To quote one of the song titles; «His Plans Are Sure».
