I know what you're thinking...yet again, not a book. Sorry, when Deseret Book offered me this new great CD, I just couldn't turn it down!
About the album: Grammy-nominated #1 Billboard Violinist Jenny Oaks Baker takes her style to an all-new level with her new release, Classic: The Rock Album. Featuring classic rock favorites like Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin), Sweet Child of Mine (Guns and Roses), and Yesterday (The Beatles), you won't believe your ears as one of the country's most accomplished and acclaimed violinists combines her insane talent with the heart-pumping tunes that have defined a genre for generations.
My Review: I LOVE Jenny Oaks Baker, the first exposure that I really had to her was a Time Out For Women event about a year and a half ago, she is an amazing violinist, and definitely an amazing person. I was super excited to get to review her new CD, Jenny Oaks Baker playing Classic Rock on her violin, what's not to love. I popped this CD into the player in our car and I have listened to it several times and loved every minute of it. Jenny plays these songs so well, and I love the way her violin seems to sing on the high notes. This is such a great CD, you really won't want to miss it!
I was sent a copy of this CD in exchange for an honest review.
