CD Review: Jaime Michaels, "little dreams"
Mar 26, 2000
Jaime Michael, a New Englander by birth, comes from parents who likeso many lucky musicians, were both pianists. His mother's preference for gospel and his dad's love of boogie have both influenced this acoustic guitarist and song writer who now resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jaime has written a beautiful collection of songs on his CD, "little dreams". They range from my personal favorite, the sweet "Almost Daedalus", which conveys a childlike innocence;
"...There isno simple way to fall,
To the spunky cut, "Steal Light", which is a bluesy dialoguebetween God and the devil;
"...God don'tlisten if you're lying when you're praying...
"...tell mewhat you want,
"Every Little Dream" shines as a funky little song with a howlingharmonica and a tinkling Louisiana style piano;
"...but myprayers took wing and flew to heaven,
On the cut, "Never Be the Same", which is about a friend'sbattle with substance abuse, Jaime's fine tenor voice is reminiscent of Neil Young. The album is comprised of mainly quiet songs - messages of hope and poetic images of the seasons and creation. His warm heart is even further underscored by the name of his production company; frumdaheart productions.
People who enjoy acoustic music will appreciate Jaime Michaels' contributionto the genre.
