Being the featured artist on WMNR on November 16th 2006
And having some really postive reviews, such as,
**. I can’t remember the last time I was so surprised by the sheer quality of a recording which came from seemingly out of nowhere and was so modestly packaged.” **
“The recording is almost ridiculously well-engineered – seriously, this sounds like a major label release.” *
I’ve written many times that the real joy of being a music reviewer is the discovery of the unexpectedly delightful recording – one that astonishes even the jaded listener and makes one realize that there is still a lot of great music out there to be released. Neon in the Black is one such album and Eric Petersen is a highly talented artist who I can only hope will continue recording music. This CD blew my socks off and if you like highly accessible music that mashes together jazz, electronica and new age music, I can’t believe that you won’t be equally impressed. “ **
“His music is portraits in black and white and everything in between.” *
“There is a vast forest between France and Belgium in an area once called Bastogne. Today it is known as
Ardennes. For all of its woodland beauty it was once the scene of some terrible battles during WWII. Although the
ghosts of valiant warriors walk along its verdant paths, it is a place of peace and memories. On the track
Bastogne 1944 Eric, with a dramatic piano score and ethereal voices captures the tranquility now restored to the
hilly and forested lands that stretch to the Rhineland. This is one of my favorite cuts. “ *
“Peace for Pat is the best track on the album. There is warmth in the melody and yet there is a hesitation, almost
a caveat in the flow. The vibraphone sound is soothing and the string background adds to the realism. The title
notwithstanding, there is no finality to the tune and we have to ask why. Perhaps this sort of peace is a beginning
more than an ending.
Listening to Eric Petersen’s music is like going through a exotic fabric shop made of music. There your hands
touch smooth and rough, silky and soft and warm. Always warmth. And there are so many unexpected colors
Rating: Very Good – “ *
