Give a new dimension to jewls of latin music
I have know most of these songs for many years and even grew up listening to them to the extend that they became melodies I stop caring for. Mark's versions are deep and allowed me to discover new feelings and love for these, and I can't stop myself from listening over and over this wonderful passionate and romantic interpretations. Thank you for rescuing from the past these jewels and for giving them a new meaning!

I love this album!
I have listened to this album more than any other album in my music collection since first receiving it 8 months ago. I listen to it when I am preparing meals, working on the computer, dining with friends and relaxing on the couch. Mark's voice has a warmth and lightness that dances across the beautiful melody lines in every song. The arrangements are tasty and the musicians play with such ease and grace. From beginning to end, this CD delights. I love it!

Sonic Marriage of Talent and Love
Mark Baum's Arboles y Amores is excellent! I have followed his musical career for many years and feel that, right now, with this CD, he is at the height of his vocal abilities. I'm amazed by how Mark is able to make use of his highly developed vocal technique, while maintaining a completely natural sound. Mark's deep love for his repertoire of Latin American songs is evident in his delivery of them. He brings so much life to these songs it's hard to believe that he is not a native speaker of Spanish. The musicians accompanying him are top notch and support his voice beautifully. Some of my favorites include Las Acacias, Amor Se Escribe Con Llanto, Dos Arbolitos, Fina Estampa, Florecer and Soy Cobarde.

Thank you
Mark Baum's voice has a warm vibrancy and clarity which feels comforting and tender. His vocal range is extensive and he uses it effectively with these charming melodies. The music flows through him with an easy and natural rhythm and invites me to listen closely.  The  musicians accompanying him play brilliantly, a wonderful collaboration.  
  Even without my understanding the language of this set of beautiful songs, he manages to communicate honest emotion directly. It comes easily through his gentle and natural pronunciation and his wonderful phrasing.  It's very cool to have the English translation included though.  
  Finally, the production values are top notch. The sound quality is clean and quiet, conveying a real sense of intimacy. I have enjoyed listening to this album several times already and I expect it will become one of my favorites.

That VOICE!!
Mark, your voice sounds more confident and sweet than ever! The arrangements are perfect for the intimacy of the songs. This album is an echo from your heart and a beautiful expression of your talent and spirit. I can't wait to hear more!!

Delight
Mark Baum found his delight, and it's in classic popular songs of Latin America. His delight and joy in this music especially come through for me on the tracks: "El Arbol Que Tu Olvidaste", "Dos Arbolitos", "Amor se Escribe con Llanto", "Pesares", "Cuando Se Va El Amor" and "Fina Estampa". You can hear his whole body smiling as he sings these songs. The musicians that perform with him, especially the master Rafael Manriquez on guitar, are at top form and talent, and the marriage of Mark's beautiful voice and the singing of the instruments make for wonderful listening.
