"is what this whole CD will do. This is Noel at his eccletic best. He takes the listener on a journey with this one and you're much richer, musically, because of it. Every cut presents Noel playing with such fullness and grace, you just shake your head at his artistry. You have Noel getting funky on "Hold On." The beauty of "Stardust Lady," which shows off Noel's vocal skills, with a little help from Mom in the background. The emotion he plays with on the "Root's Suite," transporting you in time to the Motherland and putting you on the journey to America via the slave ship. Then he does a playful duet with one of my favorite vocalists, Miss Patti Austin on "Staying with You." Thanks to Noel, my early introduction to classical music came courtesy of the cut "Cappriccio Stravagante." And just think I bought this album for "Movin' In," and Noel's rendition of Stevie's "Superwoman." When I needed to relax, Noel was there, relieving me of the stress too much studying brought on me. Because of this album, (along with "Phantazia," and "Feel It," two other favorite albums by Noel) I got through college. Thanks Noel for sharing your lovely musical vision. A CLASSIC!"

"Hasn't experienced the true moving of their spirit via a trip through a musical journey! This man is phenomenal, the voice and the violin. I was turned on to Mr. Pointer at an early age. I was all of 17 and thought I knew music and its meaning. Then someone played this CD for me and I fell immediately in fast and furiously in love. Such a shame he left us so early. What a talent!"

"I know of the album you speak: "ALL MY REASONS" BY NOEL POINTER! REALLY REALLY GREAT STUFF...: ST. LOUIS MELODY, VIRGIE, I FEEL YOUR SOUL, ALL MY REASON, BROOKLINE..ETC..I say all that to say, that album is out of print and will not be released in the US, ever (long story I was told). Anyway, after an exhaustive search, I finally found the CD as an import from Malaysia. It cost me a pretty penny, but it was well worth it. You have to try all the import outlets. If you can't find it...I'll try to help."
