As many of you know from my own music I love the idea of ambient and emotionally engaging music, Dr. Fred Cole manages to deliver that with his instrumental "Mausoleum". Sparse yet beautifully arranged Mausoleum is so satisfying on so many levels. It starts out very minimal which really sets up the listener for an amazing musical odyssey. By the halfway point, the track picks up in "intensity" and continues to compel the listener in a most pleasing and interesting way. From a performance perspective, Dr. Fred Cole nails it. The track is subtly intricate while never losing sight of its humble beginnings. The cascading runs and sonically complex harmony never become extraneous or over-wrought, instead they continue to build in such a way that keeps the music metaphorically moving forward, in a word, I was riveted for nine and half minutes while never becoming bored, not an easy thing to do when your track is over nine minutes long. From a production perspective the recording is really well done, the piano maintains a very rich tonal quality without becoming tinny or brittle, I'd be interested in knowing whether this was a real piano with a mic or was part of a sample library, either way it matters not because the recording is mint and only adds to the overall ambience of the track. This is a stellar track with killer production and unparalleled compositional value. Perfect for any occasion when you just want a little introspective quiet time. Dr. Cole, I salute you sir, this track was amazing, thank you :) XXXChristopher CarrionXXX

I consider this music as a psicodelic trip a journey in diferent directions. This track has a very experimental univers and has it´s own caracter. It remains me also of the jazz rock band Weather report, gong and Mahavishnu Orcestra from the period 1970 - 1985. That gender with those fusion bands I think they have been a great big influence for DR Fred Cole who is continuing with this fusion jazz tradition and blended it with electronic music. I really like this track. It give me a of pictures in my head

Continue sharing your amazing gift of musicianship with the word sir. I totally recommend your contribution.

more Normally I don´t make more than 2 reviews of the same artist. The reason that this is my 4. review of Fred Coles music is that I think I have become a fan of his music. Coles music has a lot of depth, Quality and sense. And this track is still in the same style as Fred Cole use to make but with a mix of Ambient, Relaxation and New Age, but it is much more than that. This music creates pictures in my mine and maybe this music has the same efect on me as the music of weather Report. Maybe Fred Cole is an update and the continuation of weather Report. Doctor Fred Cole goes on where Weather Report did last/stoped.
The members of wheather Report are all almost dead today and the group do not exist any longer. I thnk there may be to members of weather Report who is stile alive and maybe still active.
Fred Cole does expres a huge amount of feelings and thoughts with this quiet and relaxing music. Keep going on with your good job.

Keep going with the great work, I would like to hear more music from you!! Did you done this by yourself too? I hope to hear more from this project.
