There is musical talent in my family. Unfortunately, that did not come from my parents which means that I did not inherit any. Boo hoo! Though, when my aunt and uncle came to visit we were thrilled because it was music night! The guitar would come out and they would teach us songs and make us dance. oh, how we laughed and had fun! They bestowed this music gene into their seven children, my cousins!
Â I am happy to introduce my cousin Jen Slayden who has recorded her first original CD of cello lullabies calledÂ Cellobies!
Composed of 30 minutes and 10 tracks of music, all but two songs were composed by Jen from a simple cello line and then embellished with her love of other instruments. All instruments were arranged and played by Jen.
You are going to love how peaceful and relaxing this CD really is. I first turned it on when I was cleaning up and I found myself just swaying along. I turned around at one point to see what Pâ€™Diddy was up to and he was just sitting on the rug, in a trance-like, listening. It was so funny! It really does make you stop and let your guard down. Just what we need in our crazy hectic lives huh?
My favorite song right now isÂ Rain. Each song comes with a description written by Jen. Rain saysÂ I love listening to rain. This piece of music came to me while sitting in my attic listening to a rainstorm on my metal roof. The uneven tempo at the end is indicative of the random nature of raindrops. As in my life, I find beauty not in perfection, but in spontaneity of natureâ€™s rhythm.
