REVIEWS FOR “MUSIC TO DRIVE BY”

STAN WIEST PIANO CD     www.music-you-will-love.com

A Top seller on Amazon.com

 

This CD is a standout for its beautiful arrangements of beautiful music. For anyone who likes American “standards,” this is a great pick.

AMAZON.COM        5 STARS REVUE

 

 “Not only is he a terrific pianist, but his choice of material is absolutely first rate- some truly great songs, very well played”  PETER DUCHIN

 

“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″  Bill Miller. Host of the syndicated Bill Miller Show, and Charter member of the Kansas Broadcaster’s “Hall Of Fame”
