Steven Manikowski – Feelin’ Fine

With the release of Feelin’ Fine, Steven Manikowski elicits exactly what the album title suggests. The album flows effortlessly from one track to the next in a smooth and natural rhythm. The end result is a listening experience that is both relaxing and positive. Dynamics of the album range from the easygoing opening number ‘Taylor Made’ (think James Taylor meets smooth jazz) to the driving rhythm of ‘Lakeshore Drive’ through to the caribbean influenced ‘Coconut Grove’ and ends with a melodic intertwining produced by two complementary acoustic guitars on ‘Joshua Steven’.

This is an instrumental album that blurs the lines between jazz, pop, and rock, creating a fresh new sound that should be awarded its own genre. Feelin’ Fine is now on sale at CDBaby.
