ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This music touches your soul from the very first chords. Meditation piano music of Lawrence Lougheed is just like a conversation with your very good and old friend whom you weren’t able to meet for long years, and now you both have a lot of to talk about… And you don’t need to hurry because you have plenty of time.

Compositions of the artist are full of calmness and purity. They go deep to the innermost corners of the listener’s heart and bring him warm and strength. All melodies of Lawrence Lougheed are filled with real emotion experiences and it gives a special and rare quality to his new album titled “Bluelle”.

I can compare ingenious music of Lawrence Lougheed with the best artists performing in the genre of new age, contemporary instrumental and new classic music such as Peter Kater, Lisa Downing, Laura Sullivan and, certainly, Michael Hoppe. But undoubtedly Lawrence Lougheed has his own very expressive style which cannot be fully compared even with the most famous artists. His star shines brightly on the horizon of the modern piano music.

“Bluelle” can be easily used for the heart and soul therapy. It brings such feeling like you open the window and gusts of fresh wind burst into your home. And you feel the aroma of fragrant meadow flowers and refreshing pine wood.

I would like to say about one more very important feature of Lawrence Lougheed music. It is full of elegance and refinement. “Bluelle” is a true delicacy for the most demanding music lovers. I am sure this is one of the best releases of this year.

Listen to “Bluelle”, soak up this music with all your heart, plunge into its stream and discover the real world filled with pervasive love, endless richness and inexpressible beauty.

From MainlyPiano
"Bluelle" is the fourth album from Canadian pianist/ keyboardist /composer Lawrence Lougheed and his first solo piano recording. Described as “full of elegance and refinement and will touch your soul from the very first chords,” the album maintains a peaceful vibe throughout and creates a warm and gentle atmosphere for relaxing, working, sharing a nice dinner or just enjoying some quiet time. All twelve piano solos are original compositions and improvisations. Lougheed’s previous albums are mostly electronic with some piano, so having a full album of piano solos is a treat!

Lougheed is a classically-trained musician who taught music at the high school level for many years (now retired) and was the head of his school’s music department. He is also the Music Director for his church and is self-taught in contemporary improvisation.

"Bluelle" begins with “Majestic Reflection,” a title that suggests (to me) a mirrored reflection of mountains on the glassy surface of a lake (or something similar). The music matches that description with passages that are bold and “majestic” and some that are much softer and more “reflective.” “Quiescent” is defined by Merriam-Webster as “marked by inactivity or repose: tranquilly at rest,” and the piece titled “Quiescence” is indeed very peaceful! The title track continues the soothing ambiance with just a touch of bittersweet wistfulness - a favorite! I also really like “Moonscape,” a much freer exploration that is probably mostly improvised. Darker and more mysterious, I find this one intriguing! “Calm of Darkness” returns to a serene, relaxed state. The warm and dreamy “Date Night” is another favorite and feels a bit like a romantic slow dance with a special someone when everyone else in the room seems to disappear. “Convergence” tells a story of the listener’s choosing. Some parts of the tale are more dramatic than others, but it is always very interesting. “Discovery” is another favorite with its poignant melody and purposeful feeling. Quite a bit of the piece is played in the higher range of the piano which feels lighter and more innocent, contrasted with passages that are played farther down the keyboard with more seriousness and weight. When I first started listening to Bluelle, I thought the closing track was a variation on the Pachelbel Canon, but it isn’t - it just shares some of the chord progressions. Titled “Crispin,” it’s a sweet and breezy ending to a very beautiful album.

I have reviewed all four of Lawrence Lougheed’s albums and really like the calm and simplicity of "Bluelle." Hopefully he’ll have another solo piano album for us before too long!
