Welcome aboard to music devoid of noise, concocted from a set of organic and raw instruments to create a painless sound that curses through your blood streams and leaves a wake of addiction and gratification that ensures you return for more. While you are asking, the instigator is the New Yorker Doug Ferony, who has touched listeners’ hearts and souls equally. His sound is one meant for the body, mind, and soul!
His classic album “Time After Time” featuring the pianist Dena Derose is a 14-track masterpiece that is timeless and relevant, delivered thoughtfully in a way that will haunt you for the greater part of your day even when you are through listening.
Let’s pin our focus on that mind-stunner that is the title track. Good lord, is it just perfection? Everything from the structure of this piece to its realization screams ingenuity. This is what stunning innovation and passion can do when blended.
Doug Ferony has one of those classic tenor voices that immediately conjures up images of the nightclubs in film noir movies set up in the 1960s. Through his refined vocal delivery, Ferony transports the listener into another space where the world’s cares are lifted away, infinite possibilities, and love abounds!
His voice is big, bold, and lyrical, and his performance here demonstrates his flawless singing ability.
And that piano work by Derose is just virtuosic as he lays down the ice for Doug Ferony to skate on. The cinematic ones expertly amalgamate the mellow tones to fit in with Ferony’s delivery and emotions at particular performance stages.
“Time After Time” is an incredibly fabulous performance that I have no doubt will appeal to anyone who likes their music easy, intimate, and thoughtful…very rare ingredients, only found in timeless music like this!
