Mother's Day Gift Giving Guide: The New Yanni CD -- Truth of Touch (Review)

You are probably wondering why someone in their 30's would be listening to Yanni, who has been around for over 20 years.  Well, you can thank my mother for that.  I grew up with her playing his cd's in the house and in the car.  I have to say, it took a while of listening to his music to truly appreciate it.  But, over the years, when I am trying to relax or just want to unwind, I will listen to a few Yanni tracks that I have loaded on my iPod or computer.  

My mother let me know about his new CD, Truth of Touch, as well as his 2011 tour, which she stood in line at the arena to get 2nd row tickets for her and my dad.  So, when One2One Network contacted me to see if I wanted to review Yanni's new CD, Truth of Touch, how could I say "No."  What makes this CD so different from Yanni's other music is that it is his first instrumental release of original compositions in over eight years and is a return to the genre Yanni helped create and advance.  And, for the first time, he has now added various musicians who lend their voices to his music. 

“I work the rhythms in this album,” explains Yanni about the new material. “There is a beautiful complexity in these rhythms, a new sound design. I think the melodic content is very strong and very memorable. I was having fun with this album and that’s going to become apparent.”

On March 22, Yanni launched a 40-date tour of the US. The tour will take him through theaters in major cities across the US including Radio City Music Hall in NYC and the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.  Check out Yanni's tour page to see when and if Yanni is coming to city near you.

Don't forget to check Yanni's official website, where you can listen to song sample, read more about him and his discography, and so much more.

I have added this CD to my Mother's Day Gift Giving Guide, as I know my mom, and so many other moms would love to receive this CD.  If you mom is a Yanni fan, you definitely want to pick this new CD up for her today.  Every song is bound to become a #1 hit!

Disclosure:  I was sent a digital copy of Yanni's new cd from One2One Network in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
