The first thing I have to say about "The Good Life" is that it is not a "typical" David Lanz album. Lanz's releases of the past several years have contained some smooth jazz tracks along with his soulful, inward-looking piano pieces, but "The Good Life" is a collection of fun, jazzy collaborations with other artists. I have been a fan of Lanz's music since the beginning of his recording career, and teach his music to my students more than that of any other composer,but if I hadn't known in advance that "The Good Life" was a major change of direction in Lanz's music, I think I would have thought someone had sent me the wrong CD. That said, I find this recording to be very enjoyable, and a spirited sense of fun prevails throughout the album. A few years ago, I had the amazing experience of watching David Lanz and Kevin Kern (another artist not often associated with jazz!) improvise a couple of piano duets on the spot, blowing everyone present away. So, why not? Lanz suggests that this CD is a perfect antidote to our troubled world, and he could be right. Probably Lanz's most commercial recording to date, the music is catchy, light, and dances around with a big grin on its face. Lanz is joined by Jeff Lorber and Greg Karukas on keyboards, Eric Marienthal and Michael Paulo on sax, and a full band of bass, drums, horns, guitar, and percussion. Six of the ten tracks were composed by David Lanz, and the other four are collaborations.

The concept for "The Good Life" came about as Lanz was "musing" at the piano on one of his musical heroes, jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi. "Sorry Charlie," a lighthearted toe-tapper, was the first track composed. Lanz had so much fun doing this and hearing the results played back that he decided to continue in this vein. I like "Kal-E-Fornia" a lot, with its easy piano groove, funky horns and guitar, and free spirit. "Fool's Magic" is another favorite, with its contrasting styles that alternate a smooth and rhythmic melody and a power-driven chorus. The closing track, "A Song For Helen," is more "classic" Lanz than the rest of the album, and is a song written in honor of his mom, full of warmth and love.

David Lanz has a very long history of releasing spiritual, romantic music, and I think he has wanted to do an album like this for a long time. Some folks will be demanding to know where the aliens took their favorite Sensitive New Age Guy, but I think Lanz will reach a whole new audience with "The Good Life," and will probably get a lot more radio play with it. Taking the music as it is intended, it would be a great party album (with or without other people!), so kick off your shoes, pour yourself a cool one, and enjoy!

A real surprise! A gem! 28 septembre 2004
Par CJ Mann - Publié sur Amazon.com

Let me tell you about this recent find! I bought The Good Life on the strength of a review I read and it's already one of my "grab it if there's a fire" treasures.

The first two songs Big Sur and Kal-E-Fornia have the rhythmic bounce and sheer melodic content to have you tapping your feet and humming or whistling. You'll keep grooving to the funky title track and Mood Swing with its gorgeous staccato drumming and crystal-clear piano.

My favourite song is Not a Moment Too Soon. It has everything: an insistent bassline, tiny riffs on keyboard and guitar which get right inside your head, Michael Paulo's gorgeous sax and Lenny Castro's delicious percussion. Add that superlative piano and a strong composition and you've got music that I can only describe as... perfect!

2004 so far has been a reassuring year for me as a lover of contemporary jazz - this album is one of the reasons why.

What fun!! 18 juillet 2004

For those of us who already love David's music this is a departure from his lovely reflective, romantic work. This is jazzy, uplifting and fun. I danced through Sorry Charlie and smiled thru the whole CD. I highly recommend this whole album. This really shows what a talented composer David is. He is capable of his own romantic composing, doing variations of other's music, and now he shows us his ability to write excellent jazz. Enjoy this one. I've listened to it five times now and am not the least bit tired of it.

Smoothjazz.com Review 31 août 2004
Par Sandy Shore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Get ready for ten compelling new songs from pianist/composer David Lanz, THE GOOD LIFE brings this gifted artist back home to a radio format that once embraced his solo efforts more than a dozen years ago while he was recording for Narada Records. Enter David Lanz Circa 2004. Surrounded by A-List smoothies, including Jeff Lorber, Paul Jackson, Jr, Rick Braun, and Gregg Karukas to name a few. THE GOOD LIFE incorporates the signature depth of David Lanz piano playing into what we believe is the feel good album of the summer. Still spiritually grounded, Lanz says the album title is "A call to appreciate life's many blessings in a time where the headlines threaten to cloud our individual worlds with fear and negativity." No anxiety on THE GOOD LIFE, only Smooth Jazz through and through. Our favorites include the new radio hit, "Big Sur" (a place near and dear to our hearts here at Smoothjazz.com; just down the coast on Hwy 1) which features Paul Jackson, Jr. on a Flamenco-styled guitar. We also dig, "Kal-E-Fornia" for it's spicy, samba groove, as well as the old school, R&B tinged title track, and the retro and soulful, "Mood Swing" co-written by Robbie Nevil. Our very favorite tune on THE GOOD LIFE is "It's The Way That I Feel" featuring Eric Marienthal on sax, it's the perfect marriage of Smooth and Soulful. The good life can be yours, including a copy of this great new album in your music collection will get there sooner! ~Sandy Shore
From Mainly Piano 12 mai 2012
Par Michael Debbage - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I have been a huge fan of David Lanz since his sophomore release of the magical and romantic Nightfall in 1985. Many of Lanz's past album covers were either sophisticated photo shoots of the artist or a natural landscape at its best. The animated logo of this front cover was a significant transition to the past and it clearly extends to the musical content. "The Good Life" continues the metaphoric musical movement of its predecessor, "Finding Paradise," and has more in common with the marvelous David Benoit than the roots of David Lanz. And if you are prepared for such a presentation this album is as enjoyable as many of David's past records but be prepared for a digression.

I will be the first to admit that this album was a shocker when I first heard it, however I entered my listening experience with warning and trepidation. Being a fanatic of not only Lanz but also a love of the pure New Age acoustic genre, I even found the smooth jazz format of "Finding Paradise" a difficult transition. But once I had modified my external ears I found paradise in "Finding Paradise" and without any hesitation would now recommend it as one of 2001's better releases.

So where does that leave us with "The Good Life"? When viewed in the context of what [it] is - a fun-loving pure jazz experience that will leave your toes tapping and your fingers snapping - Lanz certainly achieved his goal of making an album that is casual and carefree. However, if you were those who could not enjoy the subtle smooth jazz of "Finding Paradise" you may want to simply await David's next project, as this might not be your cup of tea. Those of you that are still with me, read on.

Lanz continues to receive support from Gregg Karukas who was also involved in the production of "Finding Paradise." He is ably assisted by other jazz names such as Jeff Lorber, Eric Marienthal and Robbie Nevil to name a few. The less obvious credit would be Jerry Hey whose horn arrangements appear on 4 of the 10 tracks. Those of you not familiar with the name should be aware that Hey became famous for his intricate horn arrangements with the flamboyant R & B group Earth Wind & Fire at the height of their success. Though subdued in relation to the EWF arrangements, Hey certainly adds a wonderful panache to the tracks he is associated with. The most obvious one would be the opening track "Big Sur", with its almost calypso influences. For that matter, check out the almost funky follow up "Kal-e-fornia". The Hey influence is also felt on "Mood Swing" and "Not A Moment Too Soon" that is reminiscent of Herb Alpert's hit "Rise". Yet, Lanz's more refrained piano work sounds utterly at home with the contrasting dirty bass line from Nelson Jackson.

Speaking of funky, "Not A Moment Too Soon" pales in comparison to the title track that has Lanz just grooving right along feeling comfortable and very at home. Yes, I did say grooving and that was not a typo. Jeff Lorber's bass work certainly adds to the rhythm and in order to truly appreciate this track turn this one up loud.

Less original, but equally as enjoyable, is the homage to the Vince Guaraldi composition "Linus And Lucy" courtesy of the track "Sorry Charlie". Or for that matter the heavily David Benoit influenced "Fool's Magic", featuring the soulful saxophone of Eric Marienthal. Wisely, Lanz closes the album with the very romantic piano-based "A Song For Helen" backed by a minimal string arrangement by Gregg Karukas. Harkening back to his romantic style and dedicated to his mother Helen, this one track will not be enough to appease the purists of Lanz fans.

Keep in mind that David Lanz has never been a musician to stand still. Bouncing from the ambient collaborations with Paul Speer, to the fully orchestrated "Skyline Firedance" and even the cover album of "Songs From An English Garden," "The Good Life" only adds credence to this diversified pianist. So those of you who can appreciate jazz and the positive attributes that it brings to the table will not only enjoy "The Good Life" but will find it an utterly uplifting experience.
