about

From Bill Binkelman of Zone Music Reporter:

The ten tracks on Return to Lakefront offer up 46 minutes of likable unpretentious new age music which contain elements of pop, jazz, and adult contemporary as well. The album has no subtext, no message, or no deep layer that needs to be unlocked, instead giving the listener breezy tunes with infectious beats and lots of "sunny day" attitude. My personal faves include: the bouncy "Change of Season" with percolating drum rhythms, pleasant bell tones, some discrete piano, and a fluid lead synth solo, all creating the sensation of driving down a sun-drenched highway; "Lighthouse" which starts off in an ambient vein but becomes a jaunty even jazzy piano and synth piece; "Memory Drift", a track that hews closer to EM/fusion than others here, what with its abundance of synth washes (some having a Berlin-esque flavor to them) and slow tempo drums; and the wonderful closing number, "Sunset" which may be the best thing KevOz has recorded up to this date. It's a slowly building dynamic exuberant song with an undeniable joyfulness running through it, as a piano refrain is joined by one synth after another, as well as some nicely muted tom-toms. It's an excellent closing cut. Overall, I certainly recommend Return to Lakefront for its friendly nature and easygoing charm.
