Great American Song Book Radio which broadcasts from The Netherlands to The United State, Europa. Asia, Australia etc.

had added “MUSIC TO DRIVE BY”    http://www.music-you-will-love  to their playlist and they are actively promoting a different song from the CD throughout the day.

I recorded the following promotion yesterday and it is currently being played during every song the radio station plays,

GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK RADIO PROMO YOUTUBE

 

Monday, September 8th, 2014

In the past year I have noticed a definite trend in both wedding cocktail hours and dinner music – to the return or more elegant and sophisticated music. The music of Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rogers and Hart, the Great American Songbook etc. This has always been the staple at the more upper end country clubs and social events. It almost seems to be a statement by the current  generation of brides and grooms to elevate the level of their weddings.

Many first dances have returned to the traditional standards of Gershwin and Porter and it is not uncommon for brides and grooms to take dance lessons to show off their skills. Danceable Jazz as well as Swing and Big Band Music keep gaining in popularity.

This has been a wonderful surprise to the older guests attending reception.

Great  American Songbook Radio broadcasts from The Netherlands to the United States , Europe and Asia on both radio and internet radio. This past week the station has selected my piano CD “MUSIC TO DRIVE BY”  www.music-you-will-love.com    to be featured and promoted on their station. Different selections from my CD will be featured at the top of each hour. Today I recorded a voice introduction for the CD and it is already being prepared at Great American Songbook Radio in The Netherlands.

The Piano CD is my personal and emotional arrangements of music of the Great American Songbook composers. I hope you enjoy listening to the CD as much as I enjoyed recording it. lbum cover inside

“You’re clearly a talented guy”
JOE FAY – WNEW Metromedia Radio

“Completing the recordings in eight hours was “a feat,” says Euphoria owner David Sokol, who was impressed by Wiest’s performance. “The man knows every tune, he knows music history,” Sokol says. “He’s a serious musician and ‘serious musician’ is the highest compliment I can pay . . . I’ve heard the greatest musicians in the world, and Stan is excellent.”
DAVID SOKOL – OWNER EUPHORIA STUDIOS
“PIANIST STAN WIEST ADDS ‘RECORDING ARTIST’ TO HIS LONG MUSICAL RESUME”
LONG ISLAND NEWSDAY

Dick Robinson, host of WHLI/1100 AM’s “American Standards by the Sea,” is also impressed by Wiest’s piano stylings. “His album is a nice reflection of the American Songbook,” he says. “I love that a song like ‘Night and Day’ is just piano. No trio, no big band, no singer. Stan does a wonderful job.” DICK ROBINSON WHLI
“AMERICAN STANDARDS BY THE SEA”

“It is as beautiful of piano playing as one would ever want to hear. It’s absolutely delicious. It’s gorgeous. Wonderful renditions of these songs. Each and every one a classic song. And you do a beautiful job, a masterful job on them. I want to compliment you on absolutely marvelous piano playing. A great great keepsake album. It simply could not have been better. It really is a group of brilliantly played selections. It’s as good as it gets. And you have every right to be proud of it.”

PAUL RICHARDS
PROGRAM DIRECTOR WHLI

 

THE TIMES UNION
Piano virtuoso Stan Wiest offers “Music You Will Love –Volume One: Music To Drive By” – draws from the Great American Songbook and beyond; Wiest’s wonderful technique and flair for interpretation are front-and-center. A generous 17 tracks of solo piano and it lives up to its title.”
“Stan Wiest has the perfect touch for the American Songbook. You can recognize the melody because he cares about the composers. A delightful CD, one you’ll listen to many times.
You’re a delightful guest. You have something to say and you say it in a most interesting way.”

John Bohannon
WRHU
“Move over Clayderman…there’s a new kid at the 88’s who not only tickles the ivories, but gives us 17 tracks of pure AMERICAN SONGBOOK pleasure. That “new kid” is Stan Wiest, a piano wizard. Stan’s “MUSIC TO DRIVE BY” is “pure piano”. My radio show audience love’s Stan!
I can’t wait for Volume 2″
