Bigben combines just the right blend of melody, rhythm, passion and landscapes to transport the listener to another place. The album Crescendo was designed to pick up and carry the listener along from the opening mantra-like melody of 'When I'm With You Tonight' to the upbeat final track of 'Circus of Love'. If you've had a bad day at work, Crescendo will bring you back down to earth and elevate your spirit back to where it belongs! This is New Age the way it's meant to be, memorable and entertaining. Give a listen, especially beyond the previews, and you won't be disappointed. Bigben syncs elements of New Age, smooth jazz and just plain beautiful melodies with arrangements for strings, piano, oboes, horns, and guitars. After writing over 70 songs and six albums, Bigben now releases CRESCENDO, a compilation of increasingly upbeat and satisfying songs designed in sequence to better one's mood. As Bigben states, 'All my album titles are metaphors for the album's content as well as my life, and like a crescendo, my life just keeps getting better and better.' Songs from this album are also available at Apple iTunes, Emusic, PassAlong, Tradebit, GreatIndieMusic, MP3Tunes, Verizon VCast, Tower Records Online, Best Buy On-Line, and others for individual downloads.
