Karen is joined on the album by cellist Emil Miland ("Abbie Marie," "It's About Love," "Deschutes River Sunrise"), noted oboist Nancy Rumbel ("Deschutes River Sunrise") and vocalist Desiree Goyette ("Mother's Prayer").

As on her first two releases, what strike the listener immediately is the warmth and intimacy of Garrett's compositions and the grace and nuance with which she plays each one. Gentle meditations on love in various forms, not always happy, these five songs aptly demonstrate that even after a prolonged absence, the immensely talented pianist hasn't lost a step. Even though just an EP, It's About Love proves that age old adage, quality, not quantity, still holds true.  Bill Binkelman/Zone Music Reporter
