Selected CD Reviews:

‘Selected CD Reviews’ highlights some of the music and musicians that I have been impressed with over the years. Whereas the critiques are entirely subjective, they are based on sound (excuse the pun) musical knowledge.

It is my hope that through these short reviews I might bring to the reader’s attention music and musicians not previously encountered, so introducing a wider spectrum of music to enjoy. A short audio samples accompanies each review.
