Editorial Reviews

Classically-trained pianist and composer Jennifer Thomas introduces you to her innovative style of piano music in her debut album 'Key of Sea'. Featuring 13 of her own compositions and arrangements, Key of Sea invites the listener to take a journey to a place where classical and new age music dance together to create a blend that proves both beautiful and emotional. Showcasing instrumentals from full orchestra to down-tempo beats, this album is not your average "piano" album. Featuring Jennifer Thomas on piano, and solo artists violinist Carolyn Southworth, vocalist Erika Nisbet, and drummer Zak Dewery, 'Key of Sea' captures the hearts of listeners both young and old as Jennifer gracefully yet dynamically provides music you can melt into.

"Key of Sea" is a stunning debut from pianist/composer/violinist Jennifer Thomas. Classically-trained on both instruments from a very early age by her musician-mother as well as other teachers and professors through college, Jennifer's lifelong immersion in and passion for music is immediately obvious. As a teenager and young adult, Thomas constantly challenged herself to play more difficult and complex classical music, culminating in winning a concerto competition that allowed her to fulfill a dream of playing the piano with a full symphony. She also continued to play the violin in local symphonies, but the piano is her first love. "Key of Sea" is made up of thirteen original works, some of which were inspired by classical pieces, and the music is a combination of solo piano tracks, piano and orchestra, piano ensemble, and one vocal selection. Although it is very soothing, Thomas' music packs a very powerful punch both musically and emotionally. Personally, I found it wonderful to wake up to rather than go to sleep with. Thomas' technique is flawless and jaw-dropping in its precision and agility. From one pianist to another, wow!

"Key of Sea" opens with "Beautiful Storm," an orchestrated piece that features Thomas on piano and violin (how'd she play them both at the same time?); she also performs the orchestrations, which are very natural-sounding. Anyone who has watched a storm come in by the ocean can appreciate how this piece goes from still and shimmering to turbulent and agitated. This is a great opening piece because it demonstrates the qualities that make this a standout album - passionate piano, quiet moments, big cinematic areas, grace, beauty, and an original vision. "Prelude in F" is an energetic piano solo that dances all over the piano celebrating the good things in life.

After discovering Jennifer's music last year, I have continued to purchase additional Cd's for friends with discerning musical tastes. I believe this album to be the best "New Age" music I've heard in a very long time. Jennifer exhibits fantistic piano virtuosity, lovely themes, as well as a variety of moods and backed by orchestration. I've listened to this album more frequently than any other music in my library, which is considerable, but never tire of it. I enjoy music with a more classical bent, and this fits perfectly. It's a new experience every time I listen.

I waited a long time for this CD and it was worth the wait. I love listening to this music in the evenings when I am working on projects - it is stimulating enough, but not so much I can't get to sleep when I'm finished. I think my favorites are Will's Song, O Mio Babbino Caro, and The Tempest, but I like all of the tracks. Jennifer Thomas has either composed her own music for some of the tracks, or done variations on favorite classical pieces. The music is beautiful, nicely arranged, elegantly performed. Highly recommended.

I bought the CD because I was in the mood to experiment with artists I had never heard about before. I was very surprised and happy with my purchase. Jennifer Thomas is a very talented artist on the piano.

A couple reviews said this was not as good as her Illumination album. I think it 's just as good, it's just for when your in a more mellow mood. This works well to play when your going to read quietly in your favorite chair on a rainy afternoon with the fireplace burning.

There are two schools of theory as to why 2006's Key Of Sea has been overlooked to date. The first theory is that the album was way under promoted and the second theory is that this reviewer was clueless and has only just managed to get on the bandwagon. Even if the latter is the correct selection then we are about to make up for that three year oversight. Simply put, Key Of Sea is one of those cross pollinating albums that is not only experimental and intriguing but also exquisite and invigorating. Buried in classical themes and arrangements, Jennifer Thomas also brings beautiful warmth to her music that is countered with melodies that will enrapture your heart.

Clocking in at just less than 52 minutes, Key Of Sea has a total of thirteen tracks, five of which are adaptations of other composers though personalized by Jennifer with her own variation of the theme. In fact, the album begins with one such arrangement via her take on MacDowell`s Piano Concerto No.2 courtesy of her interpretation entitled "A Beautiful Storm". The song begins slowly as Jennifer continues to work the entire range of her piano, complimented by sweeping orchestrated strings. The song is moody and intense and is a very impressive opener. Equally as remarkable is her interpretation of J.S. Bach "Cello Suite No.1 in G Major" courtesy of "Suite Dreams". This song also features fellow artist and mother Carolyn Southworth on violin and it is utterly breathtaking. Turn up the volume to fully enjoy this beauty.

But Key Of Sea is not just about Jennifer's interpretations of someone else's music. Pay close attention to her own compositions and you will quickly note her gift of composing her own material.
