Song & Album Reviews


- CD Reviews
"Forget all of your previous concepts of music and plug into a Brave New World of pure sonic pleasure!
With over 40 years of musical composing, performing and teaching, Chet Nichols' album, Red Mesa Sunset, invites us on a truly mesmerizing audio vacation. The title song paints a sonic image of the Southwest similar to how Pat Matheny's South American influences created imagery of California through sound. The song, Red Mesa Sunset, vividly captivates Southwestern imagery via pure audio-sonic delight. Throw on the song, Serengeti Rain, and you are transported to the African continent. The song, Night Train, lifts you up and carries you along the rolling prairie on a crisp moonlit night. Prayer Bucket, a song written as a theme song to the OurPrayerBucket.com website, is a pulsating, spacey, healing composition. The beautifully melodic, Earth River, deposits you into a musical rowboat and drifts you downstream on a summer day. Out Of The Blue, an ethereal composition lifts you high above the Southwestern desert as you fly above the landscape. Finally, the jazzy-Latin, Malibu Sunday, transports you to the beaches of Malibu as they fill with people from all walks of life as they enjoy a Sunday at the beach.
Each song has a separate taste and feel, like the planets in our universe, and like the planets, each needs to be experienced. Chet isn't a Kitchen Magician; he's The Musical Magician Extraordinaire!
Chet, Thanks for these gems. Great work, once again.
Gregory V. Welch, NMU Musicologist"

RED MESA SUNSET contains a fine collection of beautiful,
delicately developed, hypnotic song themes, with
expert ebb and flow dynamics and subtle texture variations.
Superb main rhythmic loops with gentle energizing, anticipatory
vibes and cascading melodic elements. Excellent
organic/tribal/world/jungle sounds and percussive accents.
Superb new age soft vibrancy all around! One of the best CDs
of it's type that I have ever reviewed. What I really enjoy is that
each song is unique, yet stays anchored in a meditative,
hypnotic, melodic format. For what its worth, Chet Nichols
succeeds in his intention to share with his listeners, this
elegant and fully optimized body of work-- keep up the great work."
..........Pro Internet review
