James Fernando: The Lonely Sailor

James Fernando takes you on an ocean trip using a mix of rich solo piano with just a dash of extra electronics for texture. His touch on the ivories is deep and thoughtful, longing on “The Lonely Sailor” and creating a turbulent tide on “Troubled Waters.”

He gives plenty of space like the sun working through morning clouds as his story undulates on “Untold” and gets probing into the depths on “The Journey Within.” He teams a delicate dance on the piano with soft effects on “Ancient Lullaby”, his Chopinesque “The Last Sunset At Sea” is contemplative and “The Other Side of the Storm” has a hazy mist hovering over the tiny whitecaps. A rewarding voyage
