One of Ferrante's better solo efforts
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Every sound you hear on this album was made by Arthur Ferrante - of Ferrante & Teicher but without Teicher. Using synthsized keyboards, he recorded the rhythm tracks, brass, reeds, bells etc and finally the only "real" instrument: his Baldwin piano (recorded in two stages to sound like twin pianos).Like all of Ferrante's albums, the synthesized sound gets to be a bit much after a while. However, the sound is much better here than on his first solo Christmas album, FERRANTE & KRIS KRINGLE, from 1989.Of course this doesn't compare with the old Ferrante & Teicher recordings with the full orchestra. As the popularity of "easy listening" has dwindled, it is no longer economically feasible to record with a full orchestra. Even Ray Conniff started to cut back before he died.Compared to other easy listening recordings from the 1990s by Ferrante and other artists, this deserves no less than 3 out of 5 stars. Since it is an improvement over some of Ferrante's earlier efforts, I give it 4 stars."
