Pianist Kathryn Kaye once again, as she has on every recording, displays an uncommon grace and elegant simplicity on Reflected In A Flowing Stream. Kaye's music is suffused with not just ear-pleasing melodicism but also straightforward sincerity, untarnished by the need to show off through pianistic pyrotechnics. The warmth woven into Kaye's playing has been one of her calling cards since her first release, Dreaming Still (2011), and it's this musical characteristic that continues to set her apart from many of her contemporaries. Reflected…is a bit darker at times than her previous albums, not in any kind of off-putting fashion, but in a more introspective way, some of the songs here are like delving deep into memory and perhaps recalling harder times.
