From the first notes of â€œPreludeâ€, with itâ€™s beautiful melody and pacing, youâ€™ll be drawn into a world of solitude and peaceful relaxation that sets the tone for the title tune â€œStolen Momentsâ€, with itâ€™s intertwining male and female vocal melodies.
Other highlights include a soft jazz version of the Carpenters classic â€œClose to Youâ€ in a version we guarantee youâ€™ve never heard before, the soaring saxophone melody of â€œEnd of the Dayâ€, and the gentle road groove of â€œTravel Onâ€.
Copeland is known for his jazz keyboard work, but these songs show his reflective and emotional side.
Some songs just feature piano, including â€œJust for a Momentâ€ which was a song played just once spontaneously, and recorded as is.
â€œThatâ€™s the way I do just about everything,â€ says the producer, writer and arranger for artists across the country. â€œMy jazz nature wants to keep it fresh and not think it out too much. With my new age work, I try to keep it fresh and get the idea across without the loads of editing I do on commercial projects.â€
With plans to do a series of piano-based projects in the near future, â€œStolen Momentsâ€ is just the beginning of Copelandâ€™s new age music.
â€œIâ€™d love to do a piano only version of this project, but have plenty more songs in this vein to explore, and hope to get into a studio soon to record them.â€
