“Talk about fun, here I am shaking it up at the Peppermint Lounge in 1961. If you were really Rocking they’d put the spotlight on you….and then everyone would watch you. I got the spotlight that night WOW!! You know it was tough getting up the next day for High School.” - Ronnie Spector
“Jewels of the Sea” has a dream-like essence mainly carried by a floating body of strings accompanied by winds that dart back and forth like schools of fish. Quiet rhythms turn up on some of the numbers as well as do shimmering keyboards, but all these elements blend nicely together as none of them overpower each other. Key selections are “The Ancient Galleon” which has a great waltzing cadence, “Sunken City” builds to a gentle crescendo and “Sea Numph” retains Baxter’s poppy bounce of previous releases. “Enchanted Sea” as well displays a perfect balance of wonder with just a hint of sinister mysticism.
