How can a man capture the spirit and essence of Karen Carpenter on her greatest hits? This impossible task was faced by Bernard Jackson when he started his quest to pay tribute to his favorite singer's music. Karen Carpenter and her brother's music collectively known as "The carpenters" is Bernard Jackson's most challenging accomplishments. Many singers have covered "Close to you, There's a Kind of Hush, Top of the World" and other songs made famous by The Carpenters but many have also failed to bring the subtle magic that lies beneath the surface of the songs. Karen Carpenter had a beautiful way of singing a phrase that unless you understood the emotion exactly as she expressed it, the feeling of the song and therefore the vibe is lost. Bernard Jackson studied the songs made famous by Karen Carpenter and her brother and then proceeded to develop the music that would allow him to bring you a masterpiece of singing that clearly shows how amazing an achievement this collection of tribute albums is. Bernard Jackson has faithfully brought the legendary songs of The Carpenters new life.
