A review of T & S from Susan Coleman at cnyalive.com:
Nanni’s muscular piano style blends elements of New Orleans, ragtime, blues, jazz and classical elements. Sometimes all in the same song! His warm and accessible vocal stylings handle this wide range of material without ever feeling strained or overwrought.
All in all, this album offers the listener the pleasant experience of being at one of Nanni’s solo performances. So may I suggest you open a bottle of wine with a friend and have some conversation while listening?
“Towns & Spaces In Between” was recorded live – without any overdubs – mixed, and mastered at Moonglow Studios
With clean, crisp, clear vocals, and deft work on the piano, Mark Nanni offers us 12 songs on “Towns & Spaces In Between.” This album mixes 3 lively and lovely! originals in with 9 covers, ranging from the Grateful Dead’s Stella Blue and Brokedown Palace to the classical piece Sonatina (In G.)
A review of T & S from the late Brian Cornish at nysmusic.com:
Syracuse-based keyboard player Mark Nanni has recently released a CD titled Towns & Spaces In Between. It is a wide-ranging disc that represents the breadth of Nanni’s playbook, encompassing jazz standards, original tunes, popular songs from James Taylor, and selections from the Jerry Garcia/Grateful Dead songbook. He touches on classical, blues, and ragtime as well.
It begins with a twist on Irving Berlin’s “Russian Lullaby” that allows Nanni to showcase his technique with precision and elegance. A different take on “Bye Bye Blackbird” catches the listener’s ear before leading into a couple of original songs, “Sweet Danielle,” and “Royalty.” Perhaps the biggest surprise on the recording is the last tune, “Sonatina in G,” by Beethoven.
