Noteworthy new additions to our music collection.
Lead Us Back: Songs of Worship
Third Day is one of the biggest Christian crossover acts, known as much for their tuneful alt-rock craft as for their earnest faith. The band draws listeners in to worship through big melodies and layers of intricate instrumentals, and pulls them closer to Christian faith through beautiful and honest moments of true worship.
Physical Graffiti: Remastered
Generally regarded as one of the greatest double albums of all time, the original 15 tracks represent a creative tour de force that explores the band's dynamic musical range. "One of the heaviest records of the 1970s." - Rolling Stone
For those not lucky enough to experience the music wafting from her Mt. Auburn home, Cincinnati’s Patricia Matthews Kimbrel offers her newest CD Piano Classics. The CD provides an excellent entrance for the classical music novices who might enjoy a two to ten minute sampler of the great masters and their canonized staples of the modern concert repertoire. Kimbrel highlights northern Europe with pieces by Romantic era and virtuoso pianists Brahms, Rachmaninoff, Grieg, and Chopin. Some of the pieces, like Beethoven’s “Fur Elise” and “Moonlight Sonata,” will feel familiar. But don’t underestimate her rudimentary approach to choosing arrangements – “Intermezzo” is exquisite and her interpretation of Schumann is a heartfelt serenade. This is a recording fused with texture and warmth and the feeling of a personal recital from her parlor.
Piece By Piece: Deluxe Version
Kelly Clarkson releases her seventh album, which follows up her holiday album Wrapped in Red and 2011's Stronger. Piece By Piece features the single "Heartbeat Song." John Legend joins Clarkson on "Run, Run, Run." "[Piece By Piece] takes it back to the Eighties, with totally big vocals." - Rolling Stone
