Night Train - A DREAM of a musical journey.,
This review is from: Night Train (Audio CD)
This CD is quite simply breathtaking in its virtuosity and emotional refinement. We have become used to the genius of Peterson but this selection informs us that there are degrees of excellence to which few aspire and even fewer reach. Peterson does - and with such aplomb!
Outstanding, for me, is the track of his own composition - Hymn to Freedom - where the tremoloed chords stress the struggle against the bigotry and injustice which human beings accord to other creatures. It is surely a great epitaph to two of the greatest who ever lived - anywhere:- Mahalia Jackson and Martin Luther King. It is also a credo for all of humanity carefully to examine our consciences and let them rest easily with our souls.
Do hear this selection - it is quite simply spellbinding.
