CD Review – What the Winter Said, by Kathryn Kaye

Kathryn Kaye's latest collection of piano-based music was designed with winter in mind, but it is actually an evergreen that can be enjoyed all year round in any season.

The compositions are all robust and heartwarming, with 10 originals by Kaye, one by producer Will Ackerman, and four traditional tunes.

While Kaye's classy and elegant piano skills take center stage, the keys are beautifully complemented with masterful instrumentation by Ackerman on guitar, Charlie Bisharat on violin, Tom Eaton on accordion, autoharp, and bass, Eugene Friesen on cello, Richard Gates on bass, Jill Haley on English horn, Jeff Haynes on percussion, Tony Levin on bass, and Gus Sebring on French horn.

Piano fans and music lovers in general will find something of value in this noteworthy recording.
