What others say --
AMG REVIEW - Marvin Goldstein, Pianist, Vol. 1: This first in a three-volume set of popular love songs and show tunes should please the easy listener. The album is a departure from his usual faith-centered interpretations, and the gamble pays off. In his characteristic style, Marvin proves his astounding talent without sounding pompous or flashy. He manipulates the keys to add a personal dose to each song. The pianist tackles mega-hits and blockbusters including "Unchained Melody," "Music of the Night," "Somewhere Out There," "The Greatest Love of All," "Memory" and others. Marvin doesn't need any accompaniment; he can do it all himself.
AMG REVIEW - Marvin Goldstein, Pianist, Vol. 3: Marvin Goldstein proves his virtuosity by enhancing well-known pop hits in this collection. Although he attracts listeners across the demographic spectrum, this series offers particular appeal to those who hold a special place in their hearts for soft rock and theme music of the '70s through early '90s. The number of adult contemporary hits come from film scores and TV series with a personalized touch. Goldstein must concoct medleys in his sleep; he blends songs with such ease. His style is only flashy in its lightning speed, which he combines with adequate resting places. "Volume 3" goes well with a quiet evening and candlelight dinner. Jared Johnson
