Review Of The Rick Braun Cd Rnr

RNR is the latest release from Jazz Star Rick Braun, and I can only think of one word to describe it? AWESOME!

Refreshingly, this was one of those CDs I was able to just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. Every track is enjoyable and was pretty easy for me to listen to from start to finish.

RNR is a pleasantly varied, mix of 12 tracks that are very well written songs by this clearly gifted artist. With many of the songs displaying a lot of the kind emotion that makes for a really great listen. Clearly drawing from what I can only imagine are him own personal experiences. At different points touching on the most real emotions like love, and the pain of failed relationships can certainly be heard.

If you?re a Rick Braun fan this is a CD your collection flat cannot be without. In fact, this is one of those CDs that you don?t even have to be a fan of Braun, or even Jazz to know is good. It?s just good music. Period.

While this entire CD is outstanding some of my favorites are track 2 - Sweet Somethin', track 8 - Down And Dirty, and track 12 - Sao Paulo

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 9 - Two Heart Tango. It?s a great track!
