Chameleon Days is Yanni's fourth album, released on the Private Music label in 1988 (see 1988 in music). It peaked at #2 on Billboard's "Top New Age Albums" chart in the same year. Corresponding concert tour was the "1988 Concert Series".
On his new album, Chameleon Days (August 1988), Yanni reveals a more upbeat, playful and high-spirited side to his nature than many of his fans may be familiar with. "I tried on this album to incorporate instrumental sounds familiar to anybody. I used a lot of acoustic piano, synth harmonica, whistle and other sounds to get away from the coldness of pure synthesizer", says Yanni. Acoustic percussionist, Charlie Adams, joins Yanni on several pieces, adding a more natural dimension. Yanni's trademark symphonic scope is very apparent on Chameleon Days, as is the intensity of feeling that marked his previous two albums on Private Music.
