I have been enjoying Leah Waybright's CD "Beauty Gone Wild" lately. I became aware of it through my passion for all things Happy the Man. Rick Kennell, Stan Witaker, and Ron Riddle are on it so the Happy the Man influence is definite. Rick's producing skills are an important part of the success of the project. But most of the credit does go to Ms. Waybright; she is an excellent pianist and composer. The CD is a "concept album" about flowers. The artwork is sumptuous! There is text and artwork for each of the tracks. I mean it is stunningly beautiful. It is one of those CDs that might not leap out at you on the first listen but on follow-up listens the magic becomes very clear. She manages to combine beautiful melodies, lush and clever orchestrations, and some infectious rhythms. Her choices of keyboard sounds are spot on. There is lots of variety and each sound is fine tuned. I especially like Fender Rhodes and other electric piano tones and there are lots of great examples. Yeah, I like it!
