ON DISC


Lee Aaron
Beautiful Things
Faithful Productions

“Now loosen up and be happy!” says Lee Aaron’s sidekick on her new CD — an upbeat musical medley perfectly suited for a relaxing evening at a classy restaurant or at home curled up on an overstuffed armchair.

Rock music’s “Metal Queen” expertly blends rock with jazz and blues in a versatile round of songs — some haunting, some quirky, but all richly textured. Aaron’s voice marries the velvety softness of Sarah McLachlan’s with the raw clarity of k.d. lang’s;

The lyrics of “Lo & Behold” and “Joan of Arc” have religious allusions; while the lead track “Museum” is humorous, lively and fresh — you’ll feel like you’re strolling downtown on a bright summer day along sidewalks lined with coral begonias and english ivy.

“The Why Song” begins simply, slowly adding instruments to build to a stunning multiplicity of sound while maintaining a brisk, even tempo. “Silent Serenade” is definitely dinner music highlighted by delicate piano notes.

—Mary Anne Pucovsky
