Richard Poulin

If he is that good now, just try to imagine the future!
Christian Sands is one of the fine discoveries I made recently. His jazz style denotes a true sense of improvisation, an undeniable taste, and a control that leads to an easy going form of jazz, but yet extremely inspired. He succeeds in creating atmospheres that immediately reach the listener. His music is as soothing as a walk on the seashore, hence the appropriate title.

Can't go wrong give it a listen
I'm not a particular jazz enthusiast - I just know what I like, and I liked this CD.
It is great for listening to intently in a dark room or just as background mood music.

Miss W. and T.J.

Great listening after a long day at school
My third grade student, T.J., brought in this CD to listen
to after school, in my classroom. WE love it! Christian Sands is an awesome young musician, who inspires my nine year-old student. This music is very soothing.

Lillian

This is a feel good CD. I really love it.
I just love my new CD. I listen to it in the car, during house work, at the office. It's really great music.

Tonie

One Musically BLESSED young man!
This is one of those CDs that you can have playing in the background of a gathering and someone stops and says "Hey, I like this cut, who is that?" ...I know, because it happened to me.

Jan Allston

This is incredibly good listening
Jazz at it's best, innovative, deep, moving, & soul stirring

Abdo

Bon-Bon Beagal

This CD is like the Sands of Time
The sounds of this CD reminds me of lighthouse point, where the waves come in and go out and are endless.

Leslie Pruitt

This young man will be a star someday!
Good collection. Nice mix of Christian's songs and old standards. Glad I bought it! Reminds me of the 50's & 60's Jazz in the Village. Like Cool, man.
