"This is a collection of piano dreams I recorded with a single microphone on my old Steinway upright a few years ago when the babies were small. On quiet days I went about calling up some pictures in my mind to set a melody to and, to have something from home to play when the little ones were trying to go to sleep. We made some copies for family and friends and, since the songs came in so easy, we decided to send them out the same way. Just simple songs to dream by. I hope you like them and share them with those you know who want to go. I know from experience that they prove out." - Jeff Black

From The January issue of San Diego Woman
Lullabies

Berceuse; French for lullaby, or, cradle song. Originating in England in the late 1300's had but a single purpose: To lull a child to sleep. We soothe our children with them. We soothe ourselves by humming a familiar tune when the stress of the day becomes overwhelming. As we grow older our lullabies are often songs that take us out of ourselves and let our souls rest. Music is this, from birth.

Jeff Black, singer/songwriter, has released a set of lullabies (titled: Sleepy Town) he wrote for his two young children. Available as a digital download from Amazon.com (in their MP3 downloads section) and other on-line venues, these nine tunes, composed and performed on piano sans vocals, are touching remembrances of how sweet the face of your baby is when he's slipping into the calmness of sleep. I'm afraid the lullaby has become a lost art in our IPod, MP3 driven world. The refrain of a simple melody negates the electronic world and distills the pleasure of things uncomplicated to its essence: Us, alone together, and at peace.

Download these and play them gently for the young ones - but don't leave yourself out.

I'm not sure what the other two reviewers were expecting. Did you not listen to the samples or go to his site & research this release before purchasing it? I love lyrics myself but this album doesn't need any. The titles and feeling behind Sleepy Town speaks volumes. Listen closely to the way it was recorded. A true artist makes art, not a perfect record. I absolutely LOVE the slightly out of tune piano, the sound of the pedals, the creaks, the hammers... Reminiscent of my favorite Tom Waits records. A sparse and beautifully arranged record. 5 Stars here!!!

I wish I'd read the other review before spending $9. Yes, it's just piano, and its on an out-of-tune piano. Not sure what he was going for here. He has a great voice and I'm very disappointed to not have any vocals.
The music isn't bad, relaxing in a Jim Brickman kind of way. If that's what you like.

As a long time fan I was deeply disappointed in this release. No vocals at all - just mindless piano ramblings. What a waste of $9.
