Tasha Tudor. Jackson, NH: 2006. 1st. 5 5/8" x 4 7/8"
An hour of inspirational and serene solo piano music that invites the listener to a The Color of Light, produced by Will Ackerman, features Dana's new, original compositions and a select group of musicians on cello, English horn, violin, percussion and voice. Highlighted are several Grammy-winners, including cellist Eugene Friesen, percussionist Glen Velez, and Will Ackerman on guitar.
Among her distinctively lyrical solo works are a number of pieces enhanced with instrumental textures, contemporary structures, and contrasts in sounds. The result, still within the contemplative nature of Dana's previous works, is a surprisingly powerful and evocative album. While the music of The Color of Light is more dynamic and passionate, the delicacy and nuance of Dana's playing are never lost. 68:28 minutes.
