Back to Romance
Even in today's day and time, most people wouldn't dare call themselves a 'hopeless romantic'. Even when television is showing everything from soap operas to the instant 30 minute passionate love affairs. But Rick Jarrett is different. He's a throwback to a time that many of us have forgotten that is hidden away deep inside of us. With the smooth vocal qualities and personas of his musical influences, Nat King Cole and Johnny Mathis, Rick Jarrett breathes a new life into classic standards that have touched our lives for years. BACK TO ROMANCE, his debut CD, is a priceless collection of songs that appeals to the hidden hopeless romantic locked away in all of us. However, instead of merely imitating what we are familiar with, Rick brings his own insightfulness into songs like Misty. The giddiness we feel from walking and holding hands or the big grin that comes to your face just from hearing that special someone say hello. Here's To Life, reflects Rick's choice of a different kind of love song. One that reminds us that you have to be happy with who you are, not to dwell on the past, but cherish each day as you live it, and look forward to tomorrow's challenge. Rick Jarrett is a unique artist in that he reaches out to a side of us that we hide away from others and shy away from sharing. This debut album is merely the beginning of a relationship with an artist who reminds us that there is more to us than what we see in the mirror. Rick believes in surrounding himself with awesome talent. Just listen to the musicians on Back To Romance. Terry Trotter on piano, Tom Warrington on bass, Joe LaBarbera on drums, Pete Christlieb on sax and Ron Eschete on guitar. Check'em out!
