A BEAUTIFUL COLLAGE OF UPLIFTING SONGS

With countless hits and sold-out concerts to his credit it was a safe bet that Jim Brickman's latest would be great - and, it is. Described by the gifted. Brickman himself as "a selection of songs that soothe the spirit and nurture the soul," Grace is a beautiful collage of uplifting songs that represent and speak to different faiths.
Baritone Mario Frangoulis (heard during one of Brickman's recent concert tours) offers a lyrical adaptation of "Ave Maria" that is sure to touch hearts, while Brickman himself soars with an interpretation of the Hebrew prayer Ayn Kaylohenu.
Michael Bolton's powerful rendition of Brickman's original composition "Hear Me" is incredibly moving. The voice of singer/songwriter Ginny Owens brings new meaning to the beloved "Amazing Grace."
All in all Grace is bound to be another chart-topper for Brickman, and a warm, positive, enriching listen for all.

"Jim Brickman is one pianist that sets himself apart from all other pianists by somehow creating music that clearly defines that it is he at the keyboards. The only other pianists that I feel do that are Ronnie Aldrich, Andre Previn and believe it or not, Floyd Kramer. This particular CD cannot be considered his best because in my opinion they are all his best and this is certainly no exception. It is very soothing music. I would highly recommend it to anyone who like Jim Brickman or fine music."

"Though Mr. Brickman is on a "New Age" label he has never pegged himself as a "New Age" artist.
His previous CDs have had songs that charted in AC, Country and Christian genres........music knows no boundaries.
"Grace" is in keeping with the hopeful inspirational feel of his other CDs. People change;artists grow. Mr. Brickman is doing what he is good at:writing songs deep within him.
From the soothing instrumental of "Heaven" to Michael Bolton powerfully singing "Hear Me (Tears Into Wine)", I found this CD a welcome relief........
Write on Jim Brickman!!!"
