An Excellent "Best of" Collection of Danny Wright's Music

""Healer of Hearts" is a very impressive 2CD collection, featuring his most popular tracks from the "Black and White" Series on disc 1, and the best of his original compositions on disc 2. All the tracks have been newly recorded, resulting in the excellent musical clarity and production values synonymous with Real Music.I enjoyed disc 1, featuring many familiar melodies, but given the "magic touch" by Danny. He is certainly a talented pianist and his technique is so flawless, that he makes it seem effortless to play these complex tunes. I was impressed by the inclusion of Vangelis's "Missing" and rate it highly. It is not quite up to the original, but it is close, and I consider that to be a huge compliment.For me, disc 2 is where it all comes alive. I love original music, and many of these compositions I was hearing for the first time. How I enjoyed Tracks 11 and 13. "Song for Lea" is a lovely melody, and Danny's style of playing this particular track reminded me very much of a typical Wayne Gratz masterpiece. The final track, "Time Windows" is particularly beautiful, and is the perfect way to end this hugely enjoyable disc.The CD is well presented- the style of presentation quite revolutionary for Real Music. With 25 tracks on 2CDs, it is clearly excellent value for money.Highly melodic, stylishly played and extremely enjoyable. I can certainly recommend it!"

""Healer of Hearts" is a double-CD collection of "The Best of The Black and White Series" and "The Best of Original Compositions." Pianist Danny Wright made new recordings of previously-released material from a career that began in 1986, and assembled a very impressive collection of his gentle, evocative pieces. I'm really glad that the originals and covers are on different CDs, as I vastly prefer Wright's original compositions. I'm sure many people will disagree with me, as The Black and White series has been very popular, but, as a piano teacher, many of these are songs that are played all the time - "Pachelbel's Canon in D," "Over the Rainbow," "Memory," "Brian's Song," etc. Don't get me wrong - these are all great songs, and Danny Wright arranges and plays them to perfection - it's just that I hear them so often that it's not really a treat (one of the hazards of my job, I suppose!). Wright's piano touch is so delicate that, under his hands, it's hard to imagine that the piano is classified as a percussion instrument. His composing style is usually very light, conveying warmth and a sense of peace and serenity. Some of the pieces are solo piano, and some are more orchestrated - mostly with synth strings. Some of the titles on the "Original" disc are "Wings of Hope," "Awakening," "Phantasy," and "Guardian Angel." "Song for Lea" makes me smile because of the tremendous control it takes to do a long glissando, end on precisely the correct note, and then continue the run without a pause - I'm impressed! "Healer of Hearts" is a very inviting and enjoyable collection, and provides a soothing musical massage for body and soul."
Piano. The unspoken words of a heart

"Danny Wright have been one of those musicians that made the strings of the lesser known piano spoke with a clear clarity of unceasing motion. His music have been far, one of the most respected in the industry and one that touches the heart.
Listen and feel, his music touches your memories, your presents and probably your future.
A master of his craft..."
