"One of the finest CDs I’ve ever listened to… Touch the Sky will lift the spirit and not let up until you are soaring. Pure joy and bliss!" –– Mega New Age Directory. "Highstein has the uncanny ability to tap the listener’s soul with his melodies... with meticulous arrangements and flawless performance." Valley Morning Star, Harlingen, Texas.
ABOUT THIS ALBUM A brillant palate of great melodies and interweaving textures, and an enchanting listening experience. Kenny Loggins alum Jon Clarke on soprano sax and flute; virtuoso Ed Willett cello, and Max Highstein piano. If you're a fan of Abraham/Hicks, then you've probably heard the song, Full Circle, which they play at every gathering and on their videos.
Touch The Sky was so popular when it was first released, virtually every song on the album was in top rotation on radio stations playing adult contemporary instrumental music. It remained heavily played for more than a year, and continues to be played on radio and music services all over the world.
Amazon.com review: "First off, I will say that I hate elevator music. I am a fan of the gritty stuff. I love raw flamenco, real classical music, real jazz and always hate the watered-down stuff. I prefer Danilo Perez to Kenny G, Paco de Lucia to Ottmar Liebert, and anyone over Yanni (Yawny). So that is why my copy of Max Highstein's Touch the Sky stayed unopened for years after someone gave it to me.
However, after popping it into the CD player in order to have some mindless music to read to, I was very surprised. One, he is an excellent musician and a great pianist. Two, his compositions have such soothing touches, it's fantastic. I really found myself falling into the music and being transported to different places of relaxation. The music was refreshing, relaxing, and in a word, beautiful.
Over the years, I have not tired of this CD. I listen to it often and love how it makes me feel every time. Judging from the liner notes, I think that sort of peace is what Mr. Highstein intended for the CD. I have to congratulate him on that."
Max Highstein says, "I think that more than any other album, I'm proud of the music on Touch the Sky. I was very fortunate to have songs come to me that made a perfect setting for the players I was so lucky to be able to work with. The playing of Jon Clarke on woodwinds, and Ed Willett on cello were especially crutial to the success of this music. I wish Jon was still with us, but I'm very grateful that Ed continues to participate in my projects these days."
