Let's leaf through the Book of Love, from Chapter One, "How Am I To Know if it's really Love?" to the last, "now that I've found you...Don't Ever Leave Me."
And speaking of love, I'm in love with these musicians. Mike Renzi has outdone himself arranging, and when this trio gets together, Mike and Grady and Jay, something magical happens. Then you add the soloists: Bill Easley, Warren Chiasson, Jay Berliner and Virgil Jones, and it really is heaven. They love the music, and they know the words They have a singer's sensibility. Grady and Jay (Leonhart) perform live and sing on their own CDs. Renzi, Ted, Engineers Jim Czak and
Tom Spahn, closet singers all! Take it from me, these guys do sing and boy, do they swing! My deepest thanks to each and every one of them.

"Anybody who digs quality has to be a sucker for Cynthia Crane. If you have any doubts, just listen to her previous CDs with Mike Renzi, SMOKEY BAR SONGS and BLUE RENDEZVOUS. They truly define the art of Saloon Singing. And guess what?
She's done it again with CYNTHIA'S IN LOVE. She has a voice that grows on you. That smoky, husky sound that defines "voice noir." An unabashed romantic, I was knocked out by the intimacy of her music. CYNTHIA'S IN LOVE will always have a place on the top shelf of my radio studio, ready to share with my listeners anytime!"
