Keyboardist and composer Matthew's 2nd CD, "Color My Soul," continues his Easy Listening / Contemporary Jazz explorations over the course of 10 songs as soothing as they are satisfying. On his new album, Matthew offers up a mix of original piano-led instrumental tunes that hover in the New Age / Adult Contemporary realms, but shakes things up a little with a couple nice vocal tracks ("My Child" and "Letting Go") from a fine r&b-oriented female vocalist, and a sax-led slice of loungiana ("Saxuality") that brings just the right touch of after-hours ambience. "After the Rain," with its very pretty acoustic guitar accompaniment, and the title-track, "Color My Soul," capture the essence of Matthew's composition and performing strengths, delivering lilting and memorable melodies to complement whatever you're doing, or simply to help you relax and enjoy a fine glass of wine with a friend or lover. In all, Matthew's fine "Color My Soul" CD is a beautiful and relaxing musical soundscape for fans of Adult Contemporary and Contemporary Jazz music.
