Coney Island Rhapsody
Steeped in the songs of the iconic singer-songwriters of the 50s, 60s and 70s - Hank Williams, the Beatles, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, et al. - Ar Adler creates a morphic synthesis of these influences, updated and infused with a unique personal style. Hailing from 'America's Playground,' Coney Island, Ar Adler paints audio pictures from her past and creates a sonic canvas awash with emotional experience. Read what people are saying about Coney Island Rhapsody: Song of the Year Grammy winner Julie Gold says: "...I particulary like World of Pain and She Don't Love You That Way... great poetry and form!" Jacqui from Huntington says: '...I truly get a sense of honest emotion through [the] words and voice. It is really a pleasure to listen to. I especially like World of Pain, Say Goodbye, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning Style, but there is something special about all the songs on the album...' Bill fom Baltimore says: [she] captured the genre, the songs are terrific, and [her] voice is a breathy breeze! Kathy from Canada says: I've just finished listening to the album twice. It is so good. Voice timbre is lovely. ...balance variety exactly enough to hook. The Browning piece is just plain smart! What great harmonies and guitar on the country cut. Wow. The look and concept ...are striking, but, especially now that I've heard the work, it is obvious that choices were carefully crafted and artistically integrated. Love the thread.
