CD Review – Notes From a Journey, by Kristin Amarie

Kristin Amarie proves herself a vocal force to be reckoned with on this delightful showcase of her considerable talents.

Amarie's singing exhibits great range, depth, and nuance and is a perfect complement to the songs.

All of the compositions are engaging and wonderfully arranged and produced, with instrumentation that is lavish and orchestral. Many of the songs have the feel of show tunes, and I don't mean over-the-top peppy numbers, but rather measured and easy-going ballads. Just on the strength of this CD, I could see Amarie headlining her own residency in Las Vegas or some similar entertainment mecca.

If you're looking for great songs essayed by an enchanting chanteuse, you can't go wrong with this album.
