Back in 2006, Warden was looking for the album of this artiste called Wendy Lands. Shortly after my post, she had gotten a copy of it via Amazon, and it has been sitting among our CD collection since. I had not encoded a copy of it into my iTunes collection, until this afternoon.

What I hear, I like very much! Some people say she does not have much of a voice, but I beg to differ. It is the way she delivers her voice, coupled with the music of Polish composer, Wladyslaw Szpilman, that draws me to the music. Some people might ask Szpilman who? For the uninitiated, Wladyslaw Szpilman was the subject of Roman Polanski’s Oscar Nominated film ‘The Pianist’. Do I hear voices going “Ohhhh…”?

Szpilman’s music, jazzed up with newly interpreted lyrics – cooks up images of strong coffee and cafes, and I can imagine myself lounging around reading a book on a slow Sunday afternoon.
