Notice to Our Readers: We are halting publication of the Significato Journal. It's been a lovely experience, but we have found that with limited time, we need to focus our efforts in new directions (which include book publishing). We have started to move content to our personal websites ( and (Kim's website is not ready yet)). When that process is completed, we'll send out a final email to our SJ subscribers and invite you all to subscribe to our individual subscription lists. We'll post links to our other writers too, so that you can find their work. More to come... [Peter and Kim - May 26, 2020]

Terry Kitchen -The Post-American Century

~ CD Review ~

Mar 2, 2016
Kimmy Sophia Brown

Oh this is fine pickin' and singin'. The homespunny opening number, “So Much More to Home” is a joyful and yearning song that opens the album with delicate harmonies by Mara Levine. “Sequel” seems like the next chapter of “America” by Simon and Garfunkel. It contains the great line: “We’ve lived our lives with the wind at our backs/ Blown free from the Summer of Love to the winter of AIDS/HIV/ Now nothing’s free, feels like we’re refugees in this post-American century.”

Terry KitchenThe subject matter of “Perelli’s Barber Shop” probably resonates with many young men: “Peeking at the Playboys at Perellis’ Barber Shop.” Who knew?

“Tall Against the Wave” is a tribute to a Civil War battle. It impresses like an eye-witness account. “Stay Forever” is the imploring heart of the lover reluctant to say goodbye to the dying beloved. Not an easy song to write I'm sure. “Rock of Ages” is an homage to a welcoming church who welcomes and heals a lost soul. “Mommy Come Quick” was written when Terry saw the parallels between his mother's childlike behavior with Alzheimer's, and his childhood memories. A sweet tribute. Terry has a gentle tenor voice and delivers each song with an easy style.
