A pleasant enough home made production by an enterprising lady from the USA. Linda Kazmarek is a talented pianist in the Liberace mould, and also a gifted composer/arranger - all but three of the tracks here were self-penned. She is however less convincing as a singer, though fortunately for the listener she only indulges herself in this way on three of the offerings here. Apart from those few, the other 11 tracks are very easy on the ear. Being an American production I wasn't surprised to see a patriotic track, and sure enough there was one called "America The Beautiful" but I was however surprised when half way through it turned into "God Save The Queen". Maybe some lingering guilt here for the War of Independence! In summary, pleasant enough, but nothing particularly special.
