DESCRIPTION

Jennifer Thomas is an American composer, pianist, violinist and a concert performer.  She was trained by her mother (Carolyn Southworth) from an early age and went on to study music at university.  Thomas has enjoyed much success as a composer and pianist, having her work featured in films and commercials and gaining recognition from various award bodies.  2007 saw her enter the classical crossover market with her debut, Key of Sea, an album full of her own compositions and arrangements.  Her most recent album Illumination is a mixture of classical crossover material and original work - her complex, yet accessible arrangements offer the listener a truly different experience of both pop and genuine classical.  To directly compare Thomas's 'Requiem For a Dream' with Escala's 'Requiem For a Tower' (however fair or unfair that may be) demonstrates Thomas's integrity and the wide scope of her musical palette.  Thomas understands and plays not just the hook, but the story and the context surrounding it, bringing her own texture to the pieces (e.g. check out her 'New World Symphony').  For those that primarily enjoy vocalists, let Thomas introduce you to instrumental crossover as it's rarely done as well as this.

This album is listened to, in its entirety, twice a day if not more. It's that good. One of the best albums of the last 10 years, to be released. It deserves Grammy recognition. :-)
