Sheila Cherni


Art can be many things, but to me beauty is the magnet that draws me to a work. This album is a thing of beauty from the first to last note. There is beauty in the fluidity of the expression, and there is beauty in the strength of the tone. The creativity is stellar,and all I can further say is that the beauty results in joy in the listener. Wonderful! S. Cherni
