Pianist Greg Slawson, who led classical/jazz quartet Kassaba from 2002 to 2008 with his wife and fellow Cleveland Institute of Music grad Candice Lee, released a CD earlier this year called Waterflow: Music for Relaxation.
The new-age style mood music, which incorporated sounds of nature, was intended for therapeutic purposes, in line with the duo’s current focus.
He’s now releasing Waterflow II, a new collection of music with a similar vibe.
“Waterflow II includes sounds of water from the Canadian Rockies and the Gulf Coast of Florida to Northeast Ohio,” proclaims Slawson's website. “Greg enjoys conveying the spirit of these inspiring natural places to listeners. May this recording bring you peace and healing.”
You can check out the tracks “Calm Rain,” which features Asian percussion and koto, and the nearly 20-minute “High Lake,” inspired by Lake Agnes in the Canadian Rockies, here.
The CD will be released next week, but it’s already available at Whole Foods at Cedar Center in University Heights, in case you can't wait. —Anastasia Pantsios
