)-- As a follow-up to his 2006 release “Everlasting”, Curtis Macdonald’s “Home On The Horizon” is a collection of fresh, beautiful and compelling new compositions that weave a tapestry of new age, nu-jazz, contemporary trance and adult contemporary instrumentals into a unique sound. Macdonald’s lyrical piano melodies and improvised solos bring to each piece a romantic and soulful approach that has become his signature—positive and motivating music with lush transparent electronica that drifts and surrounds memorable melodies with a pulse. The music is a perfect choice for travel, social gatherings and a wonderful soundtrack for daily domestic activities.
Curtis Macdonald is an accomplished pianist and composer due to years of study under Mort Subotnik, Leonard Rosenman, Barry Schrader, and Alan Chaplin. His style is unique in that he uses today’s ever-popular electronica genre and layers of catchy, romantic piano melodies combined with organic acoustic instruments. Macdonald’s recent projects have included works for Sony, Warner Bros, Mattel Entertainment. He has also worked with Disney, Paramount, and Universal.
Five Stars! “Home On The Horizon” has exceptional crossover appeal to smooth jazz and chill genres and has lasting appeal for listeners of terrestrial and satellite radio.
“Home On The Horizon has an appealing essence and continues to invade my consciousness long after the CD is over. This one gets four stars for this collection of inspirational instrumentals.” - Magic Voice
“With so much music available these days, from Country, Post-Punk, Monotonous Repetitive Dance to Chatty Rap, here is a CD that is un-obtrusive and a pleasure to the ears. Melody is all over this intuitive stroll through the mind of a composer who knows what one wants to hear when they just want to unwind. Some of these tunes extract “trance” elements via the form as some are more of a “pop” song formula. Overall the tunes are quite catchy and I find myself humming along. I like the use of the piano, the synth arrangements, and the mood each song represents. “Eloquence Remembered” just about floored me (My mental imagery may be different from yours), and “Till There Was You” created such a feeling of longing, again great use of melody. I would strongly recommend “Home On The Horizon” to all whom like instrumental New Age with a beat as well as you contemporary Jazz fans out there. I notice he has other CD’s out and after hearing his discography, he defiantly has a signature style. The type when you hear it, you know it’s Curtis Macdonald.” — GSC
