Last of the Independents
Fresh and honest sounding. Its hard to believe Chrissie Hynde's band seem to be in disarray. I think she is the only original memeber left and there are about three different drummers on this record. …

Tracy Chapman
Fast Car is a song about never giving up on your dreams, and that is why I never get tired of listening to it. Tracy Chapman writes powerful songs with timeless themes and that is what makes this CD so …

Free As a Bird
The flute seems to really be coming into its own as a lead instrument, and Rhonda Larson's first solo album should rightly put her at the forefront of the movement. Formerly with the Paul Winter Consort, …

The Golden Land
I'm not a big fan of Celtic music, but I really enjoy this second album by Ceredwen (Renee Gray and Andrew Fryer). Telling an epic poem of the battles between the Romans and the Druids at the turn of …

Can't Buy a Thrill
This recording is nothing like the later Cocktail Jazz era of Steely Dan. This is rock n roll with a few ballads missed in. The rhythms are so diverse and eclectic. The electric sitar and plastic organ …

River of Stars
If this album was any smoother, it would slide right out of the CD player! Fans of ethereal, uplifting instrumentals and wordless vocals will be in heaven with "River of Stars". The melodies are very …

DAN CHADBURN solo piano
Dan Chadburn's debut recording is a soaring collection of thirteen wonderful compositions and improvisations. Some solo piano albums seem a bit empty and in need of accompaniment, but Dan clearly indicates …

East of the Moon
This long-awaited new release from pianist David Lanz is a delight from start to finish. From the opening strains of the exuberant "The Green Man" to the pure poetry of the closing track, "The Visitor", …

Jack Frost: Music From The Motion Picture
The music in this movie was great. I bought this CD when I had no intrest in music at all, but I heard Hanson's song on the preview, liked it, and bought this for that (It's a shame their other songs …

Pros: Post Sgt. Pepper's, great songs and arrangements     Cons: A little melancholy and wistful     Magical Mystery Tour was the direct follow up to Sgt. Pepper's …

Katy Lied
This CD does not have the singles such as Rikki Don't Lose That Number and Peg that other Steely Dan releases have. However, it has many snappy jazz/rock numbers that will get you to say,"This is primo …

August & Everything After
I am not the biggest fan of nineties music. Most of it is either too grungy or overly synthesized for my tastes. However, this record does stand out from the pack because it was recorded and written from …

Clara Ponty
Clara Ponty's debut album fully demonstrates this new artist's tremendous power as both composer and pianist. At first, I had a hard time getting into the music (it seemed too remote), but it was well …

Songs From an English Garden
Let me preface this by saying that I teach David Lanz's piano music more than that of any other composer, so I know most of his music inside and out. I have seen him in concert five or six times, have …

Mother: Songs Celebrating Mothers & Motherhood
This collaboration between Irish singer/songwriters Susan McKeown and Cathie Ryan, and pianist/composer Robin Spielberg is a celebration of motherhood "for anyone who has ever had a mother, is a mother, …

In the Arms of the Wind
This is the sixth album from composer/pianist Robin Spielberg, and is every bit as good or better than her critically acclaimed best-seller, "Songs of the Spirit". The feel of the album reflects Robin's …

This first recording from pianist Mark Birmingham is incredible! Originally trained as a concert pianist, Birmingham's roots show clearly! The title presents a theme of the many activities that go on …

Island Sanctuary
This is Wayne Gratz's first album of original material in three years, and it was definitely worth the wait! Many of Wayne's fans (myself included!) were dismayed by the string of cover albums that have …

Sweet Dreams - Piano Solos
This gentle, elegant solo piano debut is a real beauty! Classically-trained in performance, composition, and conducting, Mia Jang lets simple, heartfelt melodies tell her stories, and the results are …

Evening With David Lanz
After doing an extensive interview with David Lanz last fall and exchanging a few emails early this year, it came as a real shock to see a new "live" album in record stores. Narada released it rather …

Summer Daydreams
Pianist Kevin Kern has released another gem! More classically-influenced than his previous two releases (or is it just all of the strings?), "Summer Daydreams" is soft, gentle, and sunny throughout. There …

Roots - The Solo Piano Album
For awhile it seemed that many of the solo piano albums being released were safe and predictable, and it was becoming increasingly more difficult to tell one artist from another. This past year has brought …

Romantic Rhapsodies
The first two tracks of Romantic Rhapsodies gave me the impression that this was going to be a very pleasant smooth jazz album, but it is so much more than that! I have to admit that this is my first …

Greetings From Asbury Park Nj
This debut release is a real winner. It seems to have somewhat less of instrumental layering than on future releases but it still is loaded with quality songs. The production is a little muddy in spots …

Darkness on the Edge of Town
Maybe this isn't as uplifting as Born To Run but there's still plenty of emotion throughout this record. Many of the songs deal with the blood, sweat, and pain. And not everyone will like that. However, …
