Funny how seasons mark our lives. Weddings in June, school in the fall, Holiday vacations and winter's quiet wait for the new spring awakening. This album speaks to that with songs like April In Paris, Summertime, Autumn Leaves and Winter’s Here. Consider the longing and acceptance that September Song portrays and you see the point. Some of the songs have appeared in previous C/P CDs but there are new ones as well and there comes a big surprise at the end. On the final track you will hear a vocal arrangement of a song I wrote back in the 1970s with lyrics by Fred Smith. The song is entitled “Winter's Here”, and it appeared in the Christmas Piano album in 1992 as an instrumental. But the words so perfectly fit the melody that they begged to be heard together. And, yes, there is even some orchestration. But not to worry, Cocktail Piano is not departing from its traditional piano only format. But just between you and me I hope the song becomes a Christmas classic rivaling Nat Cole’s The Christmas Song (Chesnuts roastin’). After you hear it please let me know what you think.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy
