CD Review and Giveaway (3 Winners): Escapes, Music for Relaxing by Jeff Gold

Closed.  And, the winners are:
Crib Couture
Jolly
and 
Jessica Peeling!!!!


For the past couple of weeks I have been listening to Escapes by Jeff Gold.  This CD truly came in handy last week after Hurricane Irene.  During the first few days of driving back and forth from CT to MA to check on the house and then stay with family with electricity, both my daughter and I listened to Jeff's CD during the 1 1/2 hr. car rides.  I have listened to dozens of relaxation CD's over the years, but I have to say that this is truly one of my favorites.  What sets Escapes apart from others that I have purchased and listened to is that it is mainly acoustic guitars, piano, strings and flutes.  Other CD's are filled with waves crashing or music that really doesn't sooth and relax you. This one really does bring a sense of calmness over you in minutes.  I was surprised at how Savannah enjoyed the music.  It was amazing.  I simply played the CD and within 6 miles of leaving the house, she was sound asleep.  How is that for a lullaby?  And, with her being shuffled between two houses and spending hours in the car, this CD really came in handy.  



This CD is perfect for anyone looking to unwind and relax, or play in the background while you do yoga or meditation.  It is perfect for pregnant moms, nursing moms, and new moms.I will definitely be adding this CD to my bag when I go to the hospital in Nov. for my labor and delivery.  

And, if you have a child with special needs, many parents have been raving about this CD and how it has helped to calm and put their children at ease.


Click here to listen to a sampling of the music found on the Escapes CD.  You can hear my favorite track, Del Playa here.


About the Composer, Jeff Gold:


California native Jeff Gold is a composer/musician who creates imagery through music, images that are emotional and melodic, restorative and uplifting. He composes soulful relaxing instrumentals which have received the attention of wellness centers and spa owners who want to offer this method of relaxation to their clients. Jeff has released two CD’s, “Soul of a Mountain” in 2006, and “Escapes – Music for Relaxing” in 2009. 


Listeners who have explored Jeff’s latest CD “Escapes” hear how he has intertwined his musical expression with a calming “vibe.” Jeff was first inspired to create relaxing music after spending time on the north shore of Kauai, a mellow and tranquil place for winding down.


Jeff’s 14-year old special needs nephew, Russell, became a big fan of these soothing instrumentals because they help to calm his overstimulation.  Russell then passed his uncle’s music on to his other friends on the autistic spectrum and they found that it is helpful to them as well.


Jeff is also a contributing writer and music advisor to EXPERIENCE | PREMCHIT resorts, located throughout Europe and Asia, researching and writing articles on the physical, mental and therapeutic effects that are possible with music.


Jeff composes and arranges all of his own music, playing the guitars and pianos, and creating other instrumental sounds by computer.  He also does his own mixing, mastering and editing; a skill he perfected as a television editor for shows like MTV’s “Making the Video,” “Baywatch,” “MadTV” and “The Office.” 

Jeff has also teamed up with hypnotherapist, Janet Montgomery to produce seven guided imagery CD's for “The Live Well Series.” Topics include sleeping soundly, stress management, and coping with cancer treatment.
