Overview

America's romantic piano sensation, Jim Brickman, returns with a brilliant instrumental tribute to the music of the Carpenters.

"The songs of Karen and Richard Carpenter represent the music I loved best growing up. I played their albums over and over again. Ultimately it was their sound that inspired me when I began to compose. Richard had a knack for finding great songs, but his ability to arrange and orchestrate them truly created the Carpenters sound. Karen's rich, honest and seemingly effortless vocals completed the sound that has become timeless.

"Even now, when I listen to their music, I can picture myself like most 'angst-ridden' teens. I remember all the emotions: happy, sad and 'tortured' that each song represented. It was like they were playing for me.

"It was my great honor to sit down at the piano with the songs, the memories and my love and admiration for The Carpenters. It's yesterday once more." -- Jim Brickman
