Bluntly speaking? Even if you've yet to see Joh Cassavettes' remarkable film, The Notebook, composer Aaron Zigman (who lends his piano skills here as well) has strung the film's soundtrack in such away that his haunting score notes, which sound as if the heart were desperately trying to tell an important tale, mingle with a precise selection of perfectly descriptive lifetime-moment songs performed by the mega-stars of an era. The works unite to evoke the film's decidedly signature feel.

From song to song, you're taken through a warm personal journey - audibly. Notes thick as a southern summer's eve and light as the catfish jumping about in a spring dawn.

There's a heaping helping of celli running throughout Zigman's tone, as well as one of the largest, utilized, violin and viola credits I've seen in a few months. Love equals strings - we all know that - but here the strings are attached to particularly fine musicians found within the Hollywood Studio Symphony and conducted by Jerry Hey properly.

Along with Zigman's score, as musical producer, he's also chosen some phenomenal period-songs by heavy American iconic figures, like Billie Holiday (alone worth the price of the CD) Duke Ellington, funnyman Jimmy Durante, Count Basie, and Benny Goodman. It's jazz and frolic dancing about Zigman's compositions all telling a delightful auditory tale of true love and the abilities of that love.
