Thomas Raniszewski Wing
2004 recipient of the Pride In The Arts Genre Award for “Dreams Of The Summertime, instrumental”
"A Midnight At A Time"
Artist: Thomas Raniszewski
Review By; Len Rogers
The much acclaimed and award winning debut CD by Thomas Raniszewski, (rani-chev-ski), is not only a fine tribute to Thomas' musical talents, but should be an inspiration to independent artists. For Raniszewski has shown that talent gets attention, independent or label, talent makes difference. It is always exciting to see exceptional aptitude accepted and recognized. In addition to being a great listen, selections from Tommy's "A Midnight At A Time" have been very successfully used in guided imagery
mediation and relaxation therapy sessions. Obviously "A Midnight At A Time" satisfies a broad spectrum of listeners and fans.
Ten generous tracks complete this first sampling of Thomas Raniszewski music. A pop-new age influence combines with nuance from classic and majestically scored film and stage scores. Pensive and touching lyrics are joined with music which carries its own message creating an enlivened experience of musical sensation. Indeed Thomas' music has staying power as endearing melodies linger and find home. Vocals and accompaniment are truly complimentary and the unique joining is just a portion of the Raniszewski touch.
This is a stay and enjoy CD. While "A Midnight At A Time" fares very well at gatherings, I get the greatest enjoyment when I am able to just enjoy. There is a flow which guides you on a musically inspired journey of sensation experiences. In track number five, "At Dorothy's Fantastic Seaside Arcade" The visual empowered piece brings lively images to mind with a strength reminiscent of various works in the rock opera "Tommy". All in all a great listen with strong fan value. "Dreams Of The Summertime" - instrumental was the 2004 recipient of the Genre Award in the fan base determined Pride In The Arts Awards by StoneWall Society.
