ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Upon the release of his fifth album "Keep Moving", recording artist Nick Farr has once again put together an awe-inspiring set of compositions. The pianist/composer has included twelve original songs on this record, which sample his unique writing styles and creativity. With much variety in both composition and style that tastefully blends the genres of jazz, fusion, classical and contemporary instrumental, this is an engaging yet beautiful auditory experience.
"Farther", Farr's last release debuted at # 3 on the New Age Voice Airwaves chart in October 2000 and moved up to the respectable # 1 position for November. It remained in the Top 40 for six months on Top 20 radio lists well into 2002. As well, "Farther" has been used in television as theme and background music-a setting that is well-suited for the composer's wide range of styles. "Fahrenheit", Nick's third release hit the NAV Top 100 for airplay in September 1999. "Old River, New Water", released in 1998, is a bolder and more percussive recording that shows more of the composer's unique writing styles. "Winterbourne", Farr's 1996 debut album, sets a serene stage around the piano. And with much the contemporary classical influence, the album fast became a favorite of lovers of piano and ensemble works. "Winterbourne", "Old River, New Water", "Fahrenheit" and Farther charted thirty-eight straight months in New Age Voice Airwaves Top 20 lists, which exemplifies his staying power in the new age and jazz markets. The music has also charted on CMJ , Gavin as well as other charts worldwide. As well, the music has aired daily on satellite television (DirecTV, Dish Net) for more than five years.
A native of South Carolina, Farr began his journey into music at the age of five with classical piano training. With a music scholarship to college, Nick developed as a musician by studying various genres and styles. And later, as piano became more love than work, the writing process began again. Since that time, he has focused on a type of music and composition with which he is most proficient and comfortable-a style of piano concentrating on memorable melodies and harmonies intertwined with guitars, horns, woodwinds, percussion, strings and synths. And as each new recording unfolds through rich soundscapes and thoughtful solos, Nick's music takes each listener on an auditory journey into his creative imagination.

Upbeat Smooth Jazz
“Keep Moving” is pianist Nick Farr’s fifth album to date, and is an ensemble recording that includes piano, keyboards, flute, guitars, sax, and trumpet. Bright and upbeat, I would classify it as more smooth jazz than new age, but there is plenty of room for crossover between the genres. The pace of most of the music is easy-going, but still has the feeling of moving forward. The album title comes from a highway sign that said, “Keep Moving - Change Lanes Later.” Farr says that he has adopted that as a philosophy and a way to live a better life. The South Carolina pianist was classically-trained from the age of five, and is also a published writer and poet.

The whole album is very enjoyable, but I have a few favorites. “Marina Pacifica” is one of the slower pieces, and is mostly piano, acoustic guitar, and light percussion. The mood is kind of a quiet slow dance, or maybe, as the title suggests, some time by the water at sunset? This is a real beauty! “Wintergreen” is a bit more electronic, but has a lovely sparkle to it. Very quiet and peaceful, there is a feeling of serenity, enhanced by Leah Golden’s flute. “Bumper Sticker” has an infectious rhythm, and I love the title! The musicians seem to be enjoying an inside joke on this one and you can feel them grinning. I also like “Lowcountry Boil,” a leisurely piece that suggests the easy pace, good humor, and attitude of the South.

“Keep Moving” is a great CD for unwinding, party music, or just feeling good.
