GRAND PASSION was nominated for a 1999 Grammy for Best New Age Album.
With this album, pianist and composer John Tesh returns to a more intimate style. Although complimented by guitar, drums, saxophone, and strings, Tesh's passionate playing takes center stage. As always, Tesh's piano work is lush and dramatic, often building to emotional crescendos, but capable of quiet, moving moments as well. Two songs include vocal performances, "Give Me Forever (I Do)," with James Ingram lending his inimitable voice; and the poignant "Mother I Miss You," which Tesh wrote for his late mother, which includes vocals by Dalia Reid.

"we recently had the opportunity to listen to this cd for the first time and loved it. we were reluctant to even give it a try, not really big fans of john tesh, but we did and have to admit we really enjoyed it. the music is simply beautiful, full of emotion, and is just a pleasure to hear. treat yourself to a sampling today, amazon is kind enough to share a few minutes of this masterpiece for the mere price of a click...."
For all of us who have lost our mothers....

"Although the majority of this album is instrumental, there are two vocal selections. One of them is "Give Me Forever (I do)" and the other is "Mother I miss You." It was the second song which caused me to buy this CD, as I was able to relate to Dalia's beautifully sung lyrics. This song is for all of us who have lost our mothers, and who miss them. If you want to be swept into a place where it's okay to feel sad about your loss, then you will love this album."
Tesh's Best Piano Compostions!

"John Tesh may be better known from his days as co-anchor of Entertainment Tonight, but he is by far one of the most talented musicians of our time. An acommplished pianist, Tesh's passion lies therein. 'Grand Passion' is one of his best works, in my opinion. He plays with such conviction, the title of this cd is only fitting. He wrote all compostions on this, with the exception of the two vocals, "Give Me Forever (I Do)," and "Mother I Miss You," which he co-wrote with thier singers, James Ingram and Dalia Reid, respectivly. "The Homecoming" and "In A Child's Eyes" are also included on his debut Christmas cd, 'A Romantic Christmas.' (which by the way is wonderful too!) His grand piano solos on this cd are beautiful! They're so emotionally stirring. There are other instrumental accompaniment in some songs.....acousitc, bass & electric guitar, soprano & alto sax, drums & percussion, synthesizers, and some string arrangement. They really add to the depth of this recording. Tesh's talents permeate beyond his piano playing & writing skills, and flow over into a vast knowledge of the music and it's origins. 'Grand Passion' is a great cd to relax with, or to work with for that matter. If you aren't familiar with John Tesh, the pianist, you're in for a real treat. He takes his music very seriously and it shows. He's also done a cd series called 'Pure Movies,' which of course are songs from popular movies, and he's also done some sports related music. But, I like his own compositions the best. Besides 'Grand Passion,' 'Winter Song' and his two Christmas cd's, 'A Romantic Christmas' and 'A Family Christmas' are great works too. If you're looking for some nice soothing music, this is a wonderful cd to pick. This one is included in my most relaxing cd's list."
