1.HEY NOW (I Think I’m in Love) My signature song arranged in a sophisticated, light jazz, big band, style in the Great American Songbook tradition. (See Video)
2. A LOVER’S DREAM This ballad was also a labor of love for me since it is about the woman I have spent most of my life with and whom I love so much (See Video)
3. THE LOVE I NEED A beautiful love song written by Peter Mazzeo. I was asked to revise the lyrics to fit the theme of the album better. That was my contribution to this song. (See Video)
4.HEART ROOM (WHERE TRUE LOVE LIVES) Because a song is not a novel, ”A Lover’s Dream” was only able to present one aspect of our relationship. This song is a follow-up and extension of “A Lover’s Dream” which shows that love can be a bumpy road and only True Love will weather those dark times that do come along in life.
5. BABY YOU NEED ME We needed a love song with some attitude to round out this album. This song, with a great duet by Tito and Donna Lee, fills that bill. These are two people who know what they want and will not settle for second best.
This album is full of some great original tunes and some standards. Great to listen to!JONH SMITH - ROCKING STONE
