I’m always on the look out for new music for myself and for Lil Man. So, when I had the opportunity to get a complimentary copy of Yanni’s new album Truth of Touch – I took it.
Yanni? For my baby? Yes, that’s right.
The first name that comes to mind when looking for music for your baby is probably Baby Einstein. In their list of music you have a variety of classics like Mozart, Beethoven and Bach. I listen to these also and have a few CDs and DVDs from Baby Einstein also. The Lil Man loves them. But, I think as parents we need to think outside the box as well.
I had a pretty rough week and wanted to unwind, so I played the album in the background while doing other things and definitely like it. I do like instrumental music in general. Yanni’s album has a mixture of slow pace to up-pace – or as up-pace as you can imagine for soft instrumental. The track I enjoyed most was Echo of a Dream. Lil Man enjoyed it also. He tends to stare at the laptop/radio when he likes whatever music is playing from the speakers and he couldn’t take his eyes off the speakers while listening to Yanni. About 20 minutes into it the Lil Man decided he wanted to take a nap. This isn’t to say the album is a snoozer! I just think it’s great to relaxing the mind.
Have you heard the new album? Let me know what you think and what your favorite track is.
If you haven’t heard the album yet, at least listen to a sample of it and you might enjoy it with a nice glass of wine.
