Album Review

Fans of Jim Brickman usually love him for what he does best, simple, lush, romantic solo piano music. Recent recordings like Visions of Love and Gift have attempted to add layers to that base by adding orchestration or soaring vocals to the mix, but such things can muddle the purity of the music. Simple Things marks the return to Brickman's foundation — beautiful, gentile songs with only minimum accompaniment, featuring ten instrumentals followed by three ballads, including the adult contemporary styled title track (sung by Rebecca Lynn Howard). With the exception of the title track, which earns its way onto the album, the vocal tracks seem a bit tacked on, but the first portion of the album is first-rate solo piano music, and Simple Things will likely reinforce Brickman's solid place in the hearts of fans of new age music.

This led him to compose music for such major outfits the Gap, Isuzu, Sprint, and Kellogg's as well...
