ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
If you like acoustic guitar and piano songs that are straight from the heart, will love this record!

In her first release, singer/songwriter Tania Cordobés looks back on the lessons of her young life and finds solace with a guitar and piano in a forthright, emotionally revealing set of songs. Though written and recorded in the early '90s, the album is still in demand by new listeners who are thrilled to discover a vocal talent that is hidden from the mainstream. Tania’s original material combines beautiful melody, syncopation and soulful lyrics that embody her Cuban-American heritage.

Ms. Cordobés leads with her heart from the opening track, "Music and Time." This is her manifesto: that music enables her to slow down the inexpressible, fast-moving inner life that we all have and find momentary peace in a song. And while the answers in life aren't always clear, the emotions in a song are, and "the music soothes what time can only figure out."

She ventures into the territory of lost love in several tracks, "I'd Put Us Together," "Love Remains," and in the album's most poignant track, "Ghost Kisses." Ms. Cordobés focuses on what is left after the fighting and recriminations-the loss of a beautiful feeling that you can recreate only in your memory. In a literal and figurative drive down memory lane, she passes a restaurant and imagines her love in the seat next to her: the smile, the kiss, and "still amazed at how the memories linger through the years." A single violin, reminiscent of the Beatles "Yesterday," helps the song sail into its chorus.

Another great track is "Ponderosa Pines," a toe-tapping travelogue that picked up some modest national airplay.

This CD is a must buy for any music lover!!
The first time I ever listened to this CD - Tania's voice struck me as one of the most haunting and beautiful things I have ever heard! It's hard to decide which is better her voice or the songwriting - I give them both 5 stars!! Listen to Ghost Kisses as soon as possible - you'll never forget it!!

Tania's CD, "Looking Back, Thinking Ahead" is one of the most refreshing collections that I have listened to in a long time. Her musical style is very original, wholesome and genuine. I believe that "Ponderosa Pines" is one of the most creative and emotionally-stirring songs ever written. This CD comes from Tania's heart and will be quite inspirational to other songwriters.
