Album Notes
England's TONES OF THE TROPiCS is a cool combination of Brazilian and Latin rhythms, jazz highlights and classical orchestral arrangements, all blended with a 'secret sauce' that's all her own. The album is a mix of high energy tunes like “Vera’s Cruise”, “Dance of the Fireflies” and the title cut, “Tones of the Tropics”, contrasted by mellower tracks, including “Spring”, “Lil’ Ray of Bossa” and “Moonlit Mood”.

Fans describe England's music as "inspirational, soothing, movin' & groovin' and classy". In reviews, TONES OF THE TROPiCS has been called "a lesson in the intentional pacing that will always be an art form in the order of song choice within an album" and, "England's intent here is clearly on the journey, and she takes the listener on a relaxing enjoyable day of guitar and instrumental music".

TONES OF THE TROPiCS is a ‘feel good’ collection of ten instrumental tunes that both energize and soothe, taking the listener on a stimulating sonic journey. England’s melodies flow above samba, bossa nova and batucada rhythms from Brazil and booty-shakin’ Latin beats. Using a fingerstyle guitar technique, she conveys a refreshing economy of expression that allows her music to ‘breathe’ while riding above rich harmonies and tight, syncopated rhythms she creates using a blend of bass, keys, drums, percussion and unexpected tempo changes on a few tunes. TONES OF THE TROPiCS is a breathtaking mix of melodic cool jazz tunes in a tropical mood, presented within a dynamic and rhythmic context. You’ll want to own this CD!

A very refreshing twist to this particular genre of music. Terri is a very talented musician and this collection brings out her very best.


Wow! Impressive!!
I bought this CD from the artist's website shortly after it became available. I LOVE it! EVERY song on this CD is great, and like the ad says, it gives me energy and makes me want to dance but at the same time is relaxing. Go figure. If you like tropical jazz do yourself a favor and get this CD and load it onto your MP3 player.


This is music you won't forget. Inspirational! Clarity of tone, well written and executed! This album showcases a unique sound and a jazzy beat then mellows nicely to a cool classy rhythm. Smooth!


Moving music that shakes you from head to toe
This CD is a fantastic debut, smooth, creative, sassy and special. I recommend it to anyone who needs an uplift or stress reliever.
