CD: Walking Back To Happiness

£11.95

Product Information

(Featuring Yamaha Stagea D-Deck DDK7 Electone and Tyros5 arranger keyboard)

“I always look forward to a new album from Penny Weedon because her stylish orchestral arrangements are invariably full of warmth, feeling and musical expression.  Her latest CD, ‘Walking Back To Happiness’ is no exception and, from the opening bars of the first track, it’s apparent that the Weedon magic is there.  Never one to ‘big herself up’ we can easily forget what a talented all-round musician Penny is (although I am often reminded by the clever simplicity of her tutorials for the Yamaha Club magazine).  None-theless, her thorough understanding of orchestration is self evident in many of the arrangements.

Penny has recently imported one of Yamaha’s Stagea D-Deck ‘organ’ instruments (available only on the Asian and Latin American markets) and, Penny being an organist, this obviously suits her performance style very well.  All but two of the tracks on the album are played on the D-Deck instrument - the remaining ones are on Tyros5 - and there is a wide mix of both rhythmic and ‘freeplay’ styles.  There’s something here for most tastes although, as usual, my favourites would have to include the beautiful classic styling of Karl Jenkins’ ‘Benedictus’ (from The Armed Man) and her flowing pianistic arrangement of ‘Autumn Leaves’ - although Wichita Lineman (a 1968 hit for Country singer Glenn Campbell) is a tune I haven’t heard for a while and really enjoyed.”
