Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Part if this may be that I just finished listening to and reviewing a CD which consisted of extremely frenetic drumming and I really needed a CD like this to “cleanse my palate”. But having said that, this is a gorgeous listen. There are no vocals here just lovely instrumental piano.

Sweeten’s fingers dance over the keys in a way that makes me want to close my eyes and image gliding across a ballroom in a huge dress with jewelry dripping off me (and I’m not even that girly).

The tracks have names like “Walking with the Wind”, “In the Shadows”, “Thin Ice” which make me feel more like I ought to be picturing nature or wilderness instead of ballrooms, and maybe the next time I listen I will. But for now this is just what I need.
