The Heart Of Frida – Just Released
Starr’s new CD “The Heart Of Frida” is already becoming a landmark piano recording that is garnering amazing reviews.
Here are a few excerpts:
“Inspired by the life and art of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, the album includes nine original tracks that began as improvisations and two covers of classic rock tunes that are given a truly original treatment. Starr’s debut album, “Common Places,” was named Album of the Year in 2008 by Whisperings Solo Piano Radio, and I have no doubt that The Heart of Frida will appear on many “best of” lists and awards for 2016 – including my own! This is masterful solo piano that is deeply expressive and emotional – compelling listening that reveals new sonic colors each time you hear it. Don’t let it disappear into background music – crank up the volume and let it envelop you in the beauty of true artistry. Yes, it’s that good!…”The Heart of Frida” begins with the title track – a stunning piece that overflows with sadness, strength, and resolve. Delicate yet passionate, the simplicity of the rolling broken chords in the bass brings out the poignance and complexity of the gorgeous melody….Wow! What an album! I give “The Heart of Frida” my highest recommendation! Don’t miss it!” Kathy Parsons – MainlyPiano.com
