Aled Jones 'Higher' CD (2003), 27 Nov 2003
High quality as always, Aled has got it right yet again. With the second of Aled's most recent CD's, 'Higher', Aled offers even more than with his first CD. With a good range of material which shows off his 'highly honed' vocal technique, previously borne of his sound musical grounding, Aled takes us on a journey through the brilliance of well known classics such as 'David of the White Rock', to slightly newer material 'San Damiano', all sung with the professional flourish we know we can expect of an artist such as Aled. 'Deep Peace' and 'You Raise me Up' would serve to uplift the soul of the most fervent disbeliever in Christianity, as well as painting a beautiful picture of beautiful skies and landscapes. 'Higher' is an apt title for this CD. Higher than ever, in musicality, higher in supreme variety of music and quality, presentability higher than possible. Above all Aled reaches out within this CD, giving of his own heart to the music, taking listeners on a joyous voyage with a sad ending - sad when the CD has finished playing!
