Exceptional. Unique. Absolutely loved it!
I absolutely love Anna Chepikova's new Christmas CD. I have all of her CDs and now can enjoy her beautiful, unique, exceptional style on many of my favorite Christmas Classics. I especially loved her jazzy rendition of "Auld Lang Syne" - so cool!! Anna is my all-time favorite pianist who's music enriches my soul. Her classically trained influence on all songs, from Jazz to Pop, from Gospel to Christmas and everything in between makes listening to her music a joyful, soulful experience. Thank you, Anna!
