Overview

Lorie Line's first album was of solo piano music, but she made her name with entertaining, no-holds-barred shows and recordings that featured a "pop" orchestra. Now the veteran performer returns to her pianistic roots. Without the throngs there to cheer her on (literally), Line offers an intimate glimpse into her musical personality. Her playing is loving and reverential throughout SIMPLY GRAND. On "Harbors in the Storm," wistful longing floats in currents of deeper pondering. "Nevada Skies" paints a portrait of a vast, sturdy land, while "On Eagle's Wings" flies through intriguing bittersweet harmonies. Line also covers a warm selection of familiar tunes: "Norwegian Wood" alternates between fluttering leaves and the encompassing warmth of wood, while the new operatic favorite, "Time to Say Goodbye" (made famous by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman), soars with passionate nobility. "Castle on a Cloud" from "Les Misérables" includes touching vocals by Line's daughter Kendall. Who knows how Line does it, but I felt she was playing just for me. When she ends the album with Brahms's enchanting lullaby, I know I've been well cared for.
