This is a ground breaking CD! Released in 1990, we believe it was the very first ever New Age lullaby album. Twelve of the thirteen songs are original. (Mr. Brahms wrote the thirteenth song -- the only cover song Jonathan has ever recorded on his eight albums.) These are luscious synth-based melodic tunes. The first five songs feature Jonathan's soothing tenor and soft lyrics. The final eight songs are pure instrumental magic. DO NOT drive while listening to these sweet, soothing, sleep-inducing, sonorous sounds!
