Decent use of synthesisers produces awesome instrumentals.
Heavy use of synthesisers to imitate instruments and programme percussion sequences is usually tacky, but can occasionally be pulled off well. Kessler's Kitchen Table Collection is much more of the latter, getting off to an upbeat start with To Get To, where a melodic piano progression is accompanied well by background synthesised strings. With simple but meaning lyrics from Kessler's well articulated dual vocals, the opening track has a pleasant sing-a-long chorus. Instead of the "you and me" theme in the lyrics turning the track into a slow ballad, the fast hi-hat keeps it all quickly paced, with there being a positive atmosphere of drive and ambition.
Remove the vocals and some awesome instrumentals are produced, such as the following track Where Do We?, giving the feeling of sitting in an American midnight jazz café. With well layered keyboards, the key melodic idea is repeated with numerous variations to give a feel-good tune. You is another well layered track, though the use of electronic drum pad effects makes the Cakewalk programming a bit too apparent, though this is made up by a catchy bass. Sunday kicks off with a Seinfeld-style bass, which doesn't seem too professional on its own before a funky xylophone comes in to provide another sound instrumental.
Captive Angel is another upbeat track like the opener, the melody reminiscient of game music from 90s platform utopias such as Mario, though with the well paced vocals and use of instruments, this is more what you'd expect in a jazz bar. The tempo's slows down considerably for Learn to Live, where there's an impressive bridge melody and purposeful lyrics such as "Enjoy what you have" and "It's better to be where you are than not be at all". Layers of music are removed as there's more focus on he vocals in Old Man, the lyrics focussing on the seemingly dreary life of a "lonely man sitting on the bench".
Woodwind accompanies strings in the slow introduction to Syncapation, before launching into another lively spirited track similar to Captive Angel, without the vocals. With good interplay between instruments, layers are removed one by one by the ending. Babada is somewhat quirky, with the "ba ba da" style vocals in the intro repeated throughout. The track focuses on his love for music and writing, which is "heaven" to him - "Take my heart, take my soul, but don't take my song away". "Go to sleep", begins Lullaby (For a Wife), though it's questionable whether the heavily layered and vibrant melody matches the lyrics.
Shine Gone begins as if the intro to a Broadway musical, with dramatic musical melodies and vocal only pieces in the intro. 2 and a half minutes in, drums kick in and it becomes a full song, becoming more positive in the middle following the uncertainty regarding the "We can work it out" lyrical theme. Here Kessler's strong vocals are perhaps a bit too dramatic for the track; a more casual approach may have worked better. With a water effect and simple piano harmony at the beginning, atmosphere builds up with synthesised strings in the final track Next Time. When drums kick in this is yet another bright track, progressively slowing down at the end to round off the record nicely. Kessler is a talented individual, succeeding especially in producing 'feel-good' instrumentals. By Anjool Malde - get your CD reviewed at Blue Comet Music - www.Unsigned.tk
