CD REVIEW: Sherry K – A Whole New Woman
By Ben Ohmart - 12/01/2002 - 11:23 AM EST

Artist: Sherry K
Album: A Whole New Woman
CD Review: Well, here’s an ambitious treat from pianist/composer Skerry K. She seems to be of that rare breed who makes a living out of doing the ultimate high – what she loves. Playing music. 15 years as a private instructor, recording albums since 1977, playing weddings, funerals, recital accompanist at the University of Notre Dame, performer at the Chicago Music Mart, soloist at the Plymouth Arts Commission, and on and on and on and - well you get the idea.

Now she’s back in the studio with 66 minutes (extra points for putting the # of minutes on the back of the cd) of alternating solo piano (or the equivalent) and orchestral (even if it’s synth) accompaniment. Surprises abound at every turn. Will this next instrumental bring in clarinet, a revving motorcycle (yes, it could happen), a subtle drum beat, crashing cymbals or choral curtain in front of which Skerry K will pitch her fingers across the whites and blacks like a Rick Wakeman sporting a fresh new record contract? Hard to say. But lovely to listen to.
