CD Review: Steven Johnson plays the piano with such precision and skill that you would think that he is a college music professor, but he is only a student studying with Dr. Donald Kendrick at Cal State, Sacramento. Steven has created a complete, coherent package consisting of beautifully performed instrumental covers of popular Christmas classics ("Silent Night") and not so popular covers, ("Bring A Torch Jeanette Isabella") that can be easily digested in one sitting. If you buy just one Christmas CD by an independent artist this year, this should be it.

Advice: Keep doing what you are doing!
