Delta's Tranquil Moods: Daydream features mellow solo piano performances by Douglas Trowbridge. Trowbridge's compositions are soothing but intricate; on pieces like "A Most Remarkable Meeting," "Unending Melody," and "For a Season" you can either be lulled by the drift of the melody or engaged by its subtle nuances. Some pieces, such as "Where Dreams Are Born," come close to sounding like clichéd new age piano music, but for the most part Tranquil Moods: Daydream offers unobtrusive but distinctive twists on the style. "Finlandia" and "Beyond the Shadows" are some of the other highlights of this collection, which manages to express many moods and still sound focused yet relaxing.
