Album Review by Dyan Garris, New Age CD.com

Rhonda Mackert’s fifth album release, “Time Not Forgotten,” is an absolutely exquisite collection of twelve original solo piano pieces inspired by some of her various lifetime memories.

Feeling yourself completely relax from the very first notes, this is solo piano to immerse yourself in, for sure, whether we are “Chasing Fireflies,” “Dreaming of Sedona,” or watching the “White Cliffs”[of Dover] disappear in the distance.

Rhonda, seemingly one with her piano, is a master of quintessential elegance in both timing and touch – a wonderful artist to see in concert – and “Time Not Forgotten” is forty-eight minutes of pure bliss. Uncontrived, and with a completely effortless feel to it, every song on the album is wholly memorable.

“Dancing Through My Memories,” aptly opens the album. This has a such a nice light flavor to it, yet with an artful richness and depth at the same time.  Beautifully performed with ease and grace, “Walking Among Giants” expresses, perhaps, a reverence for life and the gifts of life.  Track 3, is the title track, “Time not Forgotten.” Like good memories, the song sticks in our head long after it has ended. Pure, graceful elegance.

To say Rhonda paints pictures with her music is truly an understatement. We are there.  It is almost impossible to choose one track as a favorite, as they are all so beautiful.  I am enamored of “White Cliffs,” which is both flowing and lovely and one to return to again and again. As well, “Healing Places,” on track 9, is exceptionally beautiful and calming as one would expect special healing places to be. “Dreaming of Sedona” perfectly evokes the soulful essence of that majestic place. Track 11, “Skipping Stones,” is fine and delicate, with a melody that skips across crystal clear water to settle deeply and indelibly into our heart space.  The album winds down with the perfectly gorgeous and timeless, “Free Floating,” which feels dreamy, yet grounded, and well-suited, it seems, for peaceful sleep.

Superlatively calming, the album, “Time Not Forgotten,” by Rhonda Mackert is a must have and recommended for any solo-piano lover, and anyone who wants and needs an unparalleled experience of utter serenity. You won’t forget it.
