Best Songs: Fibonacci's Dream, Five Nights, Song for Chava
CD Review: I could tell this was going to be a great album just from reading the liner notes. In “Fibonacci’s Dream,” Lawrence Blatt incorporates the Golden Ratio that’s apparent in life and our bodies, into his own music. Blatt uses this ratio in his chord changes or progressions and in how his songs are shaped. Some of the best is brought out through the acoustic guitar on “Fibonacci’s Dream.”

The self titled track has a mystical overtone to it. Blatt’s guitar playing and placement of other rhythmic instruments sound like they have much purpose.

“I’m Leaving Now” has striking chord power and is followed by a very peaceful number, “Five Nights.” This song makes me feel like laying out on a Californian grassy hill and sipping on some tea.

Another song I admire is “Song for Chava.” It sounds like it traveled from the Renaissance or some influence from Bach. The last song, “Move Um Out,” is named such in part of the war. It sounds as if something dangerous lay ahead, then the song speeds up for the ending, creating a more hectic sound.

If you love acoustic music, you’ll want to add this album to your collection and you’ll find that every song is great! Lawrence Blatt created original, full bodied songs with the guitar in focus on “Fibonacci’s Dream.”
