Composer Artur Bayramgalin is rather unknown in the American smooth jazz scene. It isn’t up to the music, his performance and style is brilliant. His debut album Interro Island came out in 2009, his sophomore album Electric Breezz followed in 2010. Perhaps something changes with his third album Perfect Day (2014).
The introductory song Perfect Day captures the children’s laughter and crystal-clear piano sounds of a warm summer day. Comparing his music to the likes of Richard Clayderman, Dan Siegel or David Lanz is allowed with consideration for the specific differences.
With Enisey breaks the dark Russian soul out of the artist before everything dissolves into pleasing flute tones. A new chapter of world music. Reminiscence brings some Spanish flair with jazzy guitar intonation into play. Ingeniously he mixes in Indian elements. He skillfully uses a shuffle beat to realize his musical message in Butterfly. Third Force is in the air.
Over The Clouds takes us into African plains before we are surrounded by beautiful guitar sounds. At the end even Country Fiddles and Indian flutes reach us. We are all in one world. Daydreamer gives us time for some reverie with charming keyboard resonance. With powerful vibrations we approach the end of the album. On Islands ignites Artur new musical cascades. Guitar, rhythm and keyboard form an authentic unit.
Perfect Day offers an incredible richness of musical ideas in the region of new age, world music and electronica. If you push aside the thought of the genres, remains great music that inspires.
