CD Reviews

One of the Finest CDs to be Released

"Pianist Michael Gettel has created a masterpiece with this CD. Combining piano with various nature sounds, he successfully captures the beauty of the area.It is so rare to listen to a CD where every track is strong; this is a wonderful exception! Michael Gettel displays wonderful technique on the piano, and has created beautiful and memorable melodies.It is difficult to select a favourite track. However, "Summer Rain" can only be described as "incredible". As I described in an earlier review, my class of 11 year olds used this to write some fantastic poetry, with some successfully guessing the title of the track just by listening to the music.A joy to listen to from beginning to end, this CD is currently out of print (hint, hint Narada!) but is well worth tracking down. I give it my highest recommendation. A first-class CD."
Emotional, peacefull, refreshing!

"Being someone who lived on San Juan Island, this CD absolutely fits as you drive near the shores of the enchanted beaches as well as take day hikes in the forests along the ocean. Sensational piano styles that take you to any place you imagine without leaving your home. Very emotional, exhilerating and freeing. Gorgeous composure. I recommend San Juan Suite highly to those who love majestic sounds of the ocean along with dreamy piano melodies."
Superb New Age Piano

"Michael Gettel's "San Juan Suite" is, quite simply, one of the best new age piano recordings out there. I find it amazing that Gettel hasn't reached the popularity of pianists like George Winston and Jim Brickman. The musical impressionism on "San Juan Suite" is enough to rival that of Winston's "Autumn" and the melodies are soothing and catchy enough to compare to Brickman's "By Heart". Gettel really is, as he states in the liner notes, a musical photographer. The pieces on "San Juan Suite" capture the imagery and sounds of the San Juan Islands in a way that is truly amazing. This is a must-have new age album."
