Coming Into View
Michael Logozar
2008 / Michael Logozar
53.5 minutes

“Coming Into View” is the debut release by pianist/ composer Michael Logozar. A classically-trained pianist from an early age, the Canadian-born Logozar formed a recording studio and production company in Calgary where he composed and produced many styles of music  for other artists. After many years, he decided to return to his own pianistic roots, and this beautiful and compelling CD of ten original piano solos is the result. Although the music is largely improvised, it is melodic, flowing, and very soothing. Citing David Lanz and Michael Jones as strong influences, Logozar’s playing style is very much his own. Gentle, delicate, and very expressive, this is a perfect CD for quiet dinners, relaxation, and getting lost in. It is a lovely and unobtrusive backdrop, but is complex and interesting enough to listen to over and over without it getting old. Logozar’s music can be heard underscoring a number of films and television shows, and has been nominated by the Los Angeles Music Awards and Unisong International Songwriting contests.

The CD begins with “Orchard Hill,” a graceful and very spare piece that sets the light and peaceful tone of the album. “Linger” is almost fragile in its delicacy - like a savored moment. “Soaring” seems to be depicting the freedom of floating on a cloud or gliding through space as in a dream - very calm and tranquil. “Autumn Rain” is one of my favorites - very dreamy and lightly percussive like the rhythm of a lazy rain shower (the kind I like to go walking in!). “The Promise” is a gorgeous ballad that comes from the heart - a deeply-felt and sincere vow set to music. “A New Day” conveys the warmth and anticipation of a fresh start - uncluttered and carefree. “If I Could” is another favorite - a daydream set to music with a leisurely pace and heartfelt melody. “Coming Home” is also a beauty - optimistic but somewhat bittersweet, as most emotional experiences are. 

“Coming Into View” is an impressive freshman effort and is sure to turn more than a few heads. Treat yourself to calming piano at its best!
