"There has always been a piano in my life. From as far back as I can remember it has always been there, silently waiting for me to touch it's keys and let it speak. After many years of studying music and uncovering the secrets of technique I have found that it all comes down to one thing. Touch." (From the liner notes of 'Healing Touch') If your soul is in need of a gentle, healing touch, then this CD is for you. 'Healing Touch', a collection of eight piano improvisations by pianist Martin Brookes, speaks to the heart and soul. Touching, gentle, understanding, it's 'voice' seems to know just what to 'say'. 'Martin gave Eileen a copy of his CD a few days ago and we have been listening to it over and over again. It is incredible!! I love listening to it while I am on the computer - I'm listening to it now. His talent is amazing.' Steve 'Martin, Your music is so BEAUTIFUL.... how ironic that you send me exactly what feels healing to me. I listen to it all the time.' Kim 'If music were dialogue, this, to me, would be a conversation between dear friends imbued with wisdom, acceptance, the caring art of listening, love, and yes...healing. Thank you, thank you.' Katheryn "I listened to your CD in the morning, it's very beautiful and peaceful... enjoyed it very much." DAVEED (CDBaby artist) 'I've now listened to Martin's CD twice in a row and it is just beautiful. I connect with it deeply.' Cynthia '...this music really freed my mind. It's music for the wandering mind, music for the overwhelmed, it's music like the breeze blowing away fragments of clouds and it's definitely 'wind down music'. You may quote me. You are the genuine article.' Roberta.
