Hi Whitney,Have been away, and finally had a chance to hear Marianne's fabulous album while I was having a massage this morning. WOW, what a beautiful voice...very impressive. Sure hope the album is well received.
Good morning to you!!! First of all, what a beautiful wife you have and second what a terrific voice she has. I waited to go on my computer this morning because I was at some other activities last night. Did you accompany her on these recordings? If so, you did an outstanding job yourself!! When I return I will purchase some 'CD's' that your wife has recorded. Please tell her how wonderful her songs were for me! Hope you both have a nice weekend and it was nice hearing back from you.
Your Friend Always, Joe
Whitney Phoenix and his piano style are not only relaxing, but bring needed comfort to one's soul. I listen to "Echoes of Eternity" while meditating and counting my blessings , puts me in a quiet mood which I love. Whitney's "Expressions" album truly takes me back in time , away from the present day world turmoil. What a great selection of songs he has chosen for this outstanding performance. Looking forward to his next production.

We have utilized Whitney Phoenix's CD for helping instructors to convey a very relaxed and tranquil feeling for mind body, yoga, and tai chi programs. The music helps to set a very relaxing yet enchanting atmosphere that truly helps people to enjoy their mind body movement. I would highly recommend that you help introduce this CD to the consumers as most need some inspiring music.

I play Whitney's "Expressions" CD quite often, and it brings me so much enjoyment just sitting and listening to it. I love piano music and Whitney is one of the finest pianist I have heard. Whitney use to play piano at Green Valley Baptist Church and it was always a special Sunday when Whitney played a special piece for the congregation. God Bless him for sharing his special talent that God gave him with others.
Whitney has a special gift to transport the listener to a state of grace. His music heals hearts and truly brings heaven down to earth.

I have used Echoes of Eternity CD for sleep therapy for many years. It is calming, peaceful and helps lead to relaxation and deep sleep. I was affiliated with a day spa for over 3 years where we used in massage sessions also. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who likes music, but especially those who are looking for some respite from our noisy, busy world.
AS YOU MAY RECALL YOU AND I HAD A CONVERSATION @BELLAGIO ON THIS LAST MONDAY NIGHT AND I TOLD YOU I WOULD LISTEN TO YOUR CD AND GET BACK TO YOU WHEN I HAD A CHANCE TO LISTEN TO IT I THOUGHT THAT THE QUALITY OF MUSICIANSHIP WAS VERY GOOD(WISH I COULD BE AS GOOD AS ALL OF YOU GUYS) AND YOUR WIFE HAS A VERY LOVELY VOICE. I ALSO TOOK A LOOK AT YOUR WEBSITE AND WAS SURPRISED THAT YOU WERE FROM VERMONT CALVIN COOLIDGE IS A VERY FAVORITE OF MINE AND WHEN I HEAR THE WORD VERMONT I ALWAYS THINK OF HIM. I WANT TO THANK YOU AGAIN FOR OUR VERY PLEASANT CONVERSATION AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT TIME I AM IN LAS VEGAS.
THANKS AGAIN, KEVIN DORAN
Your disks are great, both yours and your wife's. We enjoy them during dinner many evenings. We are pleased to have them and play them often. The quality is so good that I assume they are studio recorded. Does Marianne sing at any particular club or restaurant? We would like to see her live. I'll bet that she could sing, "At Last," or, "What a Difference a Day Makes," to bring tears to one's eyes. Again, well done.

Whitney has a magical & mesmerizing touch on the piano. His "Echoes of Eternity" & "Expressions" are only a sample of his masterpiece on the piano. To hear him play always touches my heart; it brings a calmness to your soul.
I listen to "Echoes of Eternity” and “Expressions" several times a week. They are so soothing and peaceful. Like most women, I have much stress in my life. I can rest in my recliner, close my eyes, hear and focus only on beautiful music! Not only does his music lift my spirits, I go to a lovely, genuine place of relaxation. Thank you Whitney!
What a joy to listen to the talent of Whitney... truly blessed!
Whitney Phoenix is a talented musician and composer who adds heart and soul to his music. When taking time for yourself and prayer is frowned upon by society, Whitney's music helps me focus on the most important part of my day - prayer time. His music takes me to a place where my soul can soared and yet I am grounded to face my challenges.
Thank you Whitney, Debbie Hall
Richard and I purchased this wonderful CD several months ago. We have listened to it numerous times and it is very relaxing and enjoyable. We also took the CD to our office and play it. Our customers inquire about it and love the sound. As you know, Richard recently underwent cancer surgery. This CD provided wonderful healing music for him after his return from the hospital. We thank you so much.
Dear Mr. Phoenix:
I had the distinct pleasure of listening to your fine mastery of the piano over the last weekend and told you I’d send an e-mail to Bellagio as well. Here is a copy of that communication. I hope next time I’m in Vegas, you will still be at that famous spotmade so because of people like you!
Best regards, Robert and Diane Bolone
Josh and Lindsey from Iowa. Sitting at the Petrossian and listening to you play is always the highlight of our trip. We really enjoyed seeing you this last Friday night! We are listening to your new CD right now and it is wonderful. Thanks so much again and hope to see you next month when we are out there.
Josh & Lindsey
I am a friend of Denise Lamoine from Maine. She has introduced me to your music and I am hooked. I am coming to Vegas for vacation the first week of April and will be by the Belligo to see you play...I can't wait. I told Denise I would get proof of meeting you....so we may have to have a picture together for her to believe me :) Can't wait to meet you in person after hearing such beautiful music

Hi Marianne! I wanted to message you to let you know that I have your precious album here - finally got a chance to open it! First congratulations - what an accomplishment. Love the sweetness of the presentation. Great job to all. Very personal packaging; endearing. Love many of the cuts - but Blackbird made me smile! Love the B3 on Wonderful World. But the gutsy and satisfying accapella Right Somebody/Goodnight was a real surprise and made my eyes well up! Beautiful! May you be blessed in every way, my friend. Congratulations.
Love to you and Whitney, Scott Frankfurt

Although it is most unusual for the artist to be the first to review her own album... let me say this... my husband's musicianship on these lullabies & other love songs is something to behold! This album is a testament that dreams do come true & that love conquers all things! I have found myself immersed in every song just by way of where the music takes me! I do not even realize that the vocalist is me! As far as I am concerned, my voice is just the icing on a masterfully made cake!
Beautiful voice, beautiful songs
My son (3 1/2) and I absolutely LOVE this CD. We take a 3 hour drive once per month up to Phoenix, AZ and have this CD in the changer in my SUV. We love it! Can't wait till the next one Marianne! :)
Love Love Love

Long awaited for this wonderful masterpiece. Musical arrangement is magnificent. I am drawn into the piano playing of sir Whitney Phoenix, amazing. My soul reaches new heights with the beautiful voice of my friend. Knowing how much went into this cd, makes this all the more special. It is absolutely heart felt and sincere in every word that is sung. So beautiful... I thank you for letting me have this part of you any time I want and need.
Marianne singz Lullabies and other love songs

It's a beautiful melody of songs from our youth, so beautifully done, I find myself singing these all the time now. I happen to have the pleasure of knowing the artists and went to High School with Marianne. She is the sweetest person you will ever meet, she could sing back then and as she has grown over the years her voice is just as magical... Thank you for giving a beautiful gift to all of us. Your voice... Love you MM
Marianne -- I just received your CD and played it through twice. I am continually stunned by your amazing voice. You truly have a gift. I'm glad that I know you as well as I do. Your talent lends such subtle nuances to songs that I may have heard before -- but never in the way you so magically present them. Whitney's arrangements work so well in paving an intriguing musical path that you travel so wonderfully. It all seems so easy but that's the way it is with all supremely talented artists. Angelic, my dear. Thanks for sharing your voice. I am honored.
