I mentioned Anne Akiko Meyers 'Smile' in this post in 2007. Here is the latest about this recording, with an interview with Anne Akiko Meyers and her collection called SMILE.
"Smile" is an eclectic array of pieces from Schubert to "Somewhere over the Rainbow." These beautiful melodies represent her life, her passions and her diverse musical interests.
Anne Akiko Meyers opens this recording with the title track, "Smile," by Charlie Chaplin.
"When I first heard that I was just blown away," Meyers recalled. "It's music that you can really play from your heart when you're actually feeling some sadness. Like bittersweet nostalgia. I responded to that music almost immediately." - MPR, Minnesota Public Radio
