This fine twofer CD has all the songs from two of Ray Conniff's outstanding record albums entitled "Turn Around Look at Me" and "I Love How You Love Me." That Ray Conniff chorus never sounded better and it's amazing how well Ray, the singers and those musicians all successfully handle these renditions of classic pop vocal tunes! The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork incorporates the original record album artwork.

"Can't Look Away" is the fourth studio album by South African American singer-songwriter and musician Trevor Rabin, released on 10 July 1989 on Elektra Records. The album reached #111 on the U.S. Billboard 200 during a stay of ten weeks. "Something to Hold on To" was released as a single and reached No. 3 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart, with its accompanying music video receiving a nomination for Best Video, Short Form at the 1990 Grammy Awards. In a 2004 interview, Rabin described "Can't Look Away" as "by far my best solo album and the one I'm happiest with." A remastered edition was released in 2011 through Voiceprint Records.

Local Brazilian jazz outfit Ensemble Novo released their sophomore record Look To the Sky earlier this month, following up 2013’s Blue Night debut with a collection of songs that could soothe your mind or get your feet moving, depending on your mood.
Here is yet another live album by the Dave Matthews Band. This one is from his Central Park Concert in 2003. This one is three CDs, loaded with hits and near-misses, from one of the most successful stage bands in the business. The Matthews Band is tight, full of enough funk and sass to keep it interesting, and yet is able to convey real emotion to tens of thousands of people, as evidenced by their many live recordings. What sets this one apart is its presentation of one concert in its entirety, and its willingness to leave rough edges in. While the sound is pristine, and the performance reflects the band's well-rehearsed acumen, there are those spontaneous moments on this set that get left off of most band's live recordings – including Matthews' previous ones.
