Celebrate Summer with New PianoSoft

Summer has a music all its own: everything from the many sounds of nature in full bloom, to the sizzling of scorching city streets contributes to what amounts to a very musical season. It comes as no surprise then that all types of musicians have found inspiration in summer, creating many different types of songs celebrating its excitement or looking back on past seasons with wistful nostalgia. No matter what type of summer music you're looking for, something to get you out of your seat, or a softer soundtrack to a relaxing vacation, there is a PianoSoft album to soundtrack your season. For a survey of summer's many moods, perhaps none is better than the latest release, "Days of Summer". Take a listen:

The new "Days of Summer" album, featuring summer themed songs from Broadway and Tin Pan Alley to the silver screen and the rock and roll stage, assembles a wide range of music, capturing both the passionate heat and the carefree air of the season. Pianist Jason Nyberg gives every song its due, but shines particularly bright on ballads, like "Sealed With a Kiss", and standards, like "Once Upon A Summertime", which he fills with the longing of summer romance.

For more great summer music, don't forget to take a listen to two other new releases, featuring cool jazz and hot bossa nova rhythms.
