This is Yanni's first instrumental release of original compositions in over eight years and is a return to the genre Yanni helped create and advance.
“I work the rhythms in this album,” explains Yanni about the new material. “There is a beautiful complexity in these rhythms, a new sound design. I think the melodic content is very strong and very memorable. I was having fun with this album and that’s going to become apparent.”
On March 22, Yanni launched a 40-date tour of the US. The tour will take him through theaters in major cities across the US including Radio City Music Hall in NYC and the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.
Yanni's Truth of Touch album is an instrument and electronic arrangement that is just simply mesmerizing. My favorite on the album is Long Way Home - the arrangement just really tugged at my soul. But each song is very creative and full of passion. You can hear the strings, the keyboard, the drums, the piano and the orchestra together as they swell but separately as the music is pulled from the soul. It's absolutely magic and one of the best instrumental albums I have had the pleasure to hear. Yanni is quite simply one of the best. Get this album today - it's amazing!!
