Freeze Frame – The Smooth Shore

Freeze Frame is a project of German keyboardist and composer Ray Bach. Not related to the great German composer and organist of the Baroque Period he shared with him an amazing compositional talent. His creativity already meandered into the albums The Book of Movie Scores (1989), The Crossover (1992), Loving Life (1994), Feelin’ So Good (1996), A Balanced World (1999), Transition (2006), Colors Of Summer (2009) and The Score Of Moviebooks (2012).

Settled on the borderline between Smooth Jazz and New Age Ray creates a special German style of Smooth Jazz, which is similar to the music of Dancing Fantasy, Blue Knights, Colors In Motion, Interface and more.
