Biography

Music has always had a big impact on me. If given the choice between watching a new movie and listening to a new song I'd choose the song every time. I can remember, as a kid growing up in Southern California, roller-skating in my driveway with the radio blaring (I'm sure the neighbors loved me for that!), or dancing around the house to my mom's Tony Elman tapes. I just ... Read more in Amazon's Jennifer Haines Store

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Seven short years ago Jennifer Haines began composing. For an aspiring musician waiting to see the fruit of her labors this can add up to a lifetime. I can tell you it was worth the wait. I had the pleasure of reviewing Christmas Magic, Jennifer’s holiday album, and the warmth and tenderness she exhibited on that album show up everywhere on this one. All the pieces of Thought & Dreams are solo piano works. Occasionally, Jennifer hit a series of notes that are reminiscent of The Lanz Style of Music. I say this in a complimentary fashion. Her overall style is light, sparkling and intricate. Such is the stuff that dreams are made of..." --R.J. Lannan, New Age Reporter

Product Description

Beautiful, original, solo piano music in the style of George Winston. Relaxing but definitely not just "background" music.

From The Artist
"This CD is my tribute to imagination and creativity. After two years spent working with Christmas carols it was delightful to be composing again. I spent every spare moment I had writing, playing and just enjoying the creative process. Each song is a moment or feeling or thought that has been set to music. The liner notes include a brief story about the origin of each piece and also an original poem ("Aspen") that I wrote while I was dreaming one night."

Jennifer Haines's CD Thoughts and Dreams is a spiritual work of art. This CD gives me peace of mind and spirit much like what I experience when surrounded by the natural beauty of a Japanese Garden. Her piano playing and compositions are totally new compared to anything I've ever heard. Every chord and melody is like a splash of fresh water or a breath of fresh air. Throughout all 13 pieces I was amazed at how her left hand would play melodic counterpart to the right hand, sometimes even more melodic than the right hand. And she used the bass section of the piano with very rich and equally unique chords. It's almost as if she's discovered an entirely new harmonic structure that has never been explored before on piano or any other instrument. Jennifer has re-established and breathed new life into the whole definition and world of 'solo piano' and 'new age piano'!

5.0 out of 5 stars From MainlyPiano.com March 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Pianist/composer Jennifer Haines' new release, "Thoughts and Dreams," has the distinction of being the first album I've reviewed from my new Oregon Coast home. Haines' gentle musical optimism is the perfect accompaniment to watching the tiny birds I can't yet identify darting from tree to tree in the summer coastal wind, the sky a bright blue backdrop with wisps of fog floating by. Haines' previous release, "Christmas Magic," is a delightful collection of her arrangements of favorite Christmas songs, but "Thoughts and Dreams," is all original material, right down to the charming watercolor cover artwork. The music of "Thoughts and Dreams" is warm and inviting without being saccharine or superficial, and while a consistent mood is sustained throughout the album, the thirteen pieces are distinctive and individual. In the liner notes, Haines briefly explains the inspiration for the music, allowing us a glimpse of her private and personal world.

The opening track, "The Storm Begins," reminds me a bit of Robin Spielberg, one of my very favorite composers. The contrasting of the high treble and deep bass notes is always effective, perhaps describing the bright first raindrops and dark, forbidding clouds. This is not a ferocious storm, but it has energy, and the piece is wonderfully refreshing. The title track is light and playful, referring to the artist's ability to escape to her imagination in otherwise boring situations. "Pacific" recalls a favorite childhood memory of a day at the ocean with her family and friend, and conveys the ceaseless rhythmic flow of the waves and their constantly-changing energy - beautiful! "Miles Apart" is a wistful musical love letter to parents who live far away, full of longing and deep emotion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetition January 9, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first theme on the cd is quite good, however, and regretfully, the rest of cd is repetition of the first theme or music score.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent but Homogenous Collection of Piano Music January 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After listening to the first two tracks, "The Storm Begins" and "Thoughts and Dreams", my expectations skyrocketed, but there were severely disappointed as I continued. The pieces simply become generic and wore me down as I listened to the end. They have to much filler arpeggios and not enough rests that characterize great piano music. A composer needs to have variety within every track and the album in general, but this simply doesn't have it.
