Chris Geith – Well Tempered Love

Keyboardist Chris Geith started his musical career with the album Forever Again in 1996. His sophomore album Prime Time followed in 2006 and was a major hit on Timeless World (2007), Island Of A Thousand Dreams (2010) and Chasing Rainbows (2014) were also chart toppers.

Now he is back with the album Well Tempered Love (2016). I mention all these albums to bring to mind how long Chris is already in the music business. The cat cannot stop chasing mice and a full-blooded musician releases music as long as he can still breathe.

Chris performs on his new album keyboards, acoustic piano and programming. Guest musician on selected tracks is saxophonist Vincent Ingala. Chris is not the typical smooth jazz pianist. In contrary he is an avid hiker between the worlds of smooth jazz and new age.

Chris Geith – Chasing Rainbows

Keyboardist Chris Geith is known for his sales success on the internet platform His recent albums Timeless World (2007) and Island Of A Thousand Dreams (2010) were also chart toppers. His collaboration with David Wells No Side Effects (2013) was often played on radio stations around the USA.

His newest album Chasing Rainbows (2014) is currently available as download only, but Chris has promised to manufacture some CDs for his next show. The first track Andromeda shines with elegant piano performance. Atmospheric force receives the piece through sustainable re-verb effects. Comparable is this with Brian Culbertson’s newest effort Another Long Night Out.

However, Chris’ music tends more to the New Age field. Green Shadow wide spreads romantic advances. Absolute Magnitude takes the style sheet of the first piece again. Chasing Rainbows has nothing to do with Ray Wilson’s album. It is knit more for the Weather Channel, where Chris found already considerable appeal.
