Soothing, Inspiring Piano Ensemble Music. A best seller! Jim took his favorite childhood memories of growing up in Michigan and spun them into rich, story-like, memorable melodies. "Embrace of a Lifetime" was written for his father.
NOTES

This album is one of the best in this genre--whatever you choose to call it. It presents a series of musical vignettes that recall the innocence of childhood and it is almost magical in transporting the listener to that lost and happy time. The tunes are all top quality and are refreshingly engaging--unlike the dreamy ambiance of some other work in this area. Production values and arrangements are also first rate--buy it! -Kronstein

The Best by The Best! I agree with the earlier reviewer who says Jim Chappell gives us 'Life Music' like no one else. There are parts of this album that bring tears to my eyes. Joyous, life affirming, uplifting music for everyone by a Master Craftsman. - S. Carrier

In my opinion, the music of Jim Chappell is what I call, "Life Music." Music that helps you reflect on past events, sustains and encourages you in your present circumstances, and inspires you to reach new heights in the future. - Willie L. Martin Jr.
