Classically trained pianist Jim Brickman's pop-flavored, smoothly flowing, and often joyously elegant compositions are the very template for commercial new age music, and he has landed countless sides and albums on the pop charts. Lately, he has expanded into other mediums, writing a pair of best-selling books, founding a highly successful e-card line, and hosting a weekly radio show. This set, 2011's Romanza, finds him visiting the world of Italian love songs, all done up with his trademark lush and lilting arrangements and also featuring Caitlin Evanson and Ben Utecht as special guest vocalists. ~ Steve Leggett
