A lot has changed since Bernie recorded "The Journey Within". All at once, my man attracted this huge following amongst the who's who of music icons, and now all of them wanted to record with him. I was a bit wary that this album would suffer from icon overkill, but some of them, especially the musicians in the "jazz" category, made some out-of-this world contributions. I enjoyed B.W.'s rendition of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame". If "Journey" was a triple, this one was out of the park!

This was a wonderful surprise. I came across it by accident while searching for anothe CD. I haven't regretted it yet. He definitely has a second career in music and if he ever quits baseball this can be his first.
