In The Mood (Heads Up)

Roberto Petera

by Bob Mitchell     

Two words say it all: enjoyably smooth. “In The Mood” is filled with tasteful arrangements that never overpower the delicacy of Petera’s harp. Listening to this CD is a perfect way to end a hectic day, because you cannot listen without being touched by its refreshing elegance and sensitivity. Each track is an unexpected and pleasant surprise containing melodies that get into your head and heart. You will experience the soothing sounds of a waterfall and fresh spring breezes floating through the air.

“Take your Time” is a light and breezy opening track. “Insatiable” is simply beautiful and the strings add a nice touch. A trumpet and acoustic guitar prove a Mexican feel for “Six A.M.” There is a subtle driving force in “Coming Home” and the soprano sax provides a perfect underpinning. Petera’s thoughtful solos evolve into a musical bowl of salsa! Savor the Caribbean flavor of “Seven Bridges.”

“In The Mood” is also recorded on an enhanced CD that allows you to see and hear a variety of other artists. “Heads Up” is an interesting label with  exceptional artists. Joyce Cooling, for example, is a jazz guitarist with an excellent release titled, Keeping Cool. Cooling was a nominee for The Gavin’s Smooth Jazz Artist of the year and named the Best New Talent (Smooth Jazz) in the JazzizReader’s Poll.
