Music Review

Andrew Goodwin of NEW MUSIC EAR provides an excellent music review of all seven songs in our new album “The Bossa Nova”.

Here is an excerpt…
HUMMINGBIRD OF SPRINGTIME (Featuring Oshra Sedan) – The opening track of the third album following 2018’s “January 16” is a beautiful, mellow ballad. Oshra Sedan’s vocals are lush and pure and lift the seasonal Spring feeling to even bigger heights. The strings give an almost bird song melody, which is perfect as the song is about a visiting Hummingbird to a garden. The rhythm is nice and slightly upbeat, giving an almost Ska or Reggae hint on the Jazz feel.
