Pianist/Composer Jim Brickman isn't content with the instrumental pop/new age label that's so often slapped onto the work of artists who make quietly pretty, radio-friendly, instrumental music. Brickman doesn't seem to want to be anybody's musical wallpaper, so this live album features several contributions from renowned guest vocalists and instrumentalists.
Australian songbird Olivia Newton-John contributes her still-dulcet tones to a pair of tunes, "Valentine" and "Change of Heart," while the indefatigable Donny Osmond turns up on the romantic ballad "Love of My Life." Smooth jazz musicians Dave Koz and David Benoit are on hand as well, to challenge (at least theoretically) Brickman's musical hegemony. The romantic theme that runs through all the tunes fits in well with Brickman's lush, emotive approach and gives MY ROMANCE its unity of feeling and tone.
