Bruce Schoenfeld
From the Print Edition:
Susan Lucci, Sep/Oct 99

(continued from page 4)

They had a baby girl by Christmas." It is clearly extraordinary, unusual stuff, and by most standards utterly unmarketable, but that is what makes it so compelling. Unlike the commercial suavity of Brickman, this is chewy, difficult material that requires hard work to listen to. Nevertheless, the reward is palpable. The lyrics work in much the same way that George Winston's instrumentals created winter in a listener's mind: subliminally at first, and then slowly, and then suddenly, with a flood of emotion. "There's a ghost in my future, there's a ghost in my past," Tedesso is singing. Ackerman mouths the words along with him, and his eyes are filled with tears.

Colorado-based writer Bruce Schoenfeld is a frequent contributor to Cigar Aficionado.
