Synopsis

Amazon.com essential recording
"By heart" is a succinct and accurate appraisal of a lovely, low-key album of 11 piano solos (with occasional string embellishments) and a concluding vocal track. By Heart paints a picture of Brickman as a thoughtful, sometimes pensive, creative soul who quietly cherishes idyllic romantic notions yet reluctantly, realistically, acknowledges that they may forever lie just beyond his ever-hopeful grasp. Such a realization, though, does not blunt Brickman's expressive longing at the keyboard, and By Heart unfolds as a touching, clear-eyed chronicle of a restless but gentle heart. The title track, with little-known Laura Creamer handling vocals, offers some of the weakest production yet strongest emotional clout of nearly any vocal selection Brickman has since recorded. Revealing and rewarding listening. --Terry Wood

A little too mellow for my taste, but an evocative and wistful album.

A TRUE MASTER

"When I was a little kid, I tried to learn how to play the piano. I really wanted to learn, so I started taking lessons. Like just about all kids, I HATED IT! When I was a little older, I started teaching myself to play the guitar. I never took lessons, but just taught myself. About 4 years ago, I heard Jim Brickman for the first time. I was BLOWN AWAY! I never new that the piano could be so beautiful. He inspired me so much, I started teaching myself how to play, and now I am starting my new album. What an inspiration. All of his Albums are incredible. I have shown this CD to alot of my friends, and no matter what kind of music they like, just about all of them really enjoy it. I could recommend it to anyone, no matter what their taste in music is."
I love this CD!

"This is the perfect CD to relax to! I've been to a couple of Jim Brickman's concerts. He's absoultly wonderful. he makes you laugh so hard and then listen to a wonderful piano piece. It's so beautiful. I love his other CD's too. KelseyA82@hotmail.com"
