Slight Chance of Rain
Editorial Reviews Dr. Aubrey Tucker-producer and professor at Houston Community College. These are songs of love and loss, of closeness and loneliness, of humor and pathos, of hope and despair. His is a quiet voice, poignant yet passionate, vulnerable yet strong. Album Description Beautiful, soft, reflective and relaxing solo piano melodies that use the stylistic elements of New Age, Classical, and a touch of Jazz. Quiet yet passionate. Simple, yet sophisticated. A welcomed encounter for the soul. About the Artist Tracy Berg was born to German immigrants in Glendale, California on August 12, 1961.
