Product Description

Jim Brickman ~ Picture This

Amazon.com

Pianist Jim Brickman would like you to picture a world that is prettier, more contented, and more emotionally in-tune than the world you probably see through your windshield each day. It may be just wishful thinking, but Brickman's music indulges in the dream anyway, and those inclined to share in the momentary journey will find it is a lovely, often romantic ride. The Cleveland-born pianist understands his strengths and sticks close to the white keys in this very inviting 13-track collection. Brickman specializes in crafting pop-influenced melodies that, to his credit, aim for the heartstrings through intelligence and subdued elegance rather than schmaltz. The album's most circulated cut is its lone vocal selection, the soft-pop hit "Valentine," sung by Martina McBride, but all 12 instrumentals are individual jewels of understated beauty. "Secret Love," for example, opens with sparkling, hopeful passages, followed by the hesitancy and uncertainty of a muted cello, resolved by a flood of expressive flourishes that beautifully convey pent-up romantic release. Even his reworking of "Frère Jacques" suggests a thoughtfulness that can make listeners rethink the tune themselves. A great choice for clear-eyed romantics. --Terry Wood

I don't remember how I came upon this CD, but I can't imagine life without it. The music is wonderful and soothing without feeling like you just came out of an elevator music coma.
I really enjoy the vocal, "Valentine" on track 11, with Martina McBride. She puts the same passion into the vocals as Jim Brickman puts into playing the piano on all of the tracks.
One thing that I really like about this CD is the smooth transition from one song to the other. The transition is so effortless that sometimes it is hard to remember each specific instrumental. But, it really does not matter because the music is so relaxing that by the end of the CD I just wanted to hear more of his music.
This music would be great for that special romantic evening or mood music if you were giving or receiving a massage.
Jim Brickman scores with Picture This.

This album was my first introduction to Jim Brickman, and a good one indeed. Only trouble, it spoiled me and later CDs of his were disappointing because of the larger number of love song vocals and smaller number of piano solos.
Especially impressive to me was "You Never Know" with Boney James' saxophone. The sax and the piano practically sing together in perfect harmony.
Also impressive, as mentioned by others, is "Frere Jacques". This is a very introspective interpretation, done very thoughtfully for the most part, but with a brilliant contrapuntal passage.
And of course the hit, Martina McBride's beautiful and delicate vocal version of "Valentine".
These are the high points, but the entire set has conversational, good-natured flow to it. Very highly recommended.

This CD is one of my 3 favorites in my CD collection. The other two being Destiny and Simple Things by Jim Brickman as well. When my day at work gets crazy ......I always return to this music to relax and calm myself. It is the best piano music to sit by the fire, to drink a glass of wine to, to be in the bathtub, to fall asleep to.....It's a CD that I've shared with and bought for many friends....Most have gone on to buy more of his CDs. If you haven't seen his concerts....they are also wonderful.....Go with a romantic interests too.....

This is by far one of my favorite cds of all time. It is truely for the romantically inclined.
But just like all of Jim's cds; the only true word to describe "Picture This" is relaxing. Thanks to him, we forget that we need to take a break and Jim helps us along.
I fell in love with his sound when "The Gift" came out. I have never looked back and have enjoyed years of his tremendous gift to us: his talent.
The one song that stands out among the rest of the songs is "Valentine" (duet with Martina McBride). That is truely the epitomy of Valentine's Day. I felt like falling in love with someone.
If you must start with any Jim Brickman cd, start with this one and you will surely be hooked.

I was coming home from another grueling day of work and through Picture This into my CD player. At that very moment the world slowed down as did my rapid heart beat. Jim has a way of just mellowing thing out,and putting life in a glowing happy light. This is an artist performing at his very best. A defining moment for sure

I meant Jim Brickman in person; and he is a genuine people person. He writes his own music! His music is full of life; and his passion for it! I recomend all his albums to anyones collection. He also puts on a wonderful concert. For anyone who loves panio you must listen to Jim Brickman! The soul of his music will lighten a heavy heart; and warm the inner sanctums of your soul. It is music that will carry you to a different place and time. It can also enhance any romantic evening that you want to share with a loved one! Candle light and Jim Brickman's music are as one senual experiance that you will want again and again! True listening for the best enjoyment...

New-age music carries a bad reputation due to mediocre artists like Yanni and Tesh. But there are true musicians like Jim Brickman, George Winston, and Enya. I was in love with Jim Brickman's music when I first heard Angel Eyes on the radio. His songs are simple, and most importantly, unpretentious. I have all of his CDs and songbooks, and Picture This is in my opinion the best album. I also listen to Jim Brickman to study, and that helped me ace many exams.

After seeing that there were already about 18 reviews on this CD, I pondered writing one at all. I love Jim Brickman's piano playing a lot. I just recently got three of his CD's: Picture This, By Heart, and No Words. I love them all! Picture This is my favorite, though, and I loved it so much that I bought the piano book so that I can play the songs!! : ) I recommend this CD as well as the other 2 that I mentioned before.
