"John, your music is very well written. Your melodies are breathtaking and very sensible. Congratulations!"
PHILIPPE-ALEXANDRE BELISLE - Canadian Keyboard Artist
"The piano is one of those instruments that never needs any introduction and has the ability to present true feeling like no other instrument. John Tussey takes that beauty of the keyboard and pours his heart and soul into this musical masterpiece. Free Flow is a powerful collection of Piano and Keyboard compositions that are sometimes moving, sometimes uplifting, but always breathtaking. The musical orchestration on this album is inspiring and full of real soul and passion. I can't find the words to do this album review justice. I don't think that there are words that can explain these feelings. It's something that only music can represent. Just like the way that John represents his emotions on this CD. If you're a fan of piano music, you will not be able to put this one down. It has to be one of the absolute best CD's that I've heard to date, and Lord knows I've heard a lot. Just pick up a copy or visit Johns MP3 site and see what I'm talking about. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.
