Desciption: "Music for readers. Jason Mraz, Bruce Hornsby and Pink Martini are among artists who contribute to the eighth volume of this limited edition series, which benefits SMART (Start Making A Reader Today) early literacy program."
Review by Portland Picks : " [...] All songs are acoustic and recorded in the KINK Live Performance Lounge. Artists like Bruce Hornsby (“Gonna Be Some Changes Made”), Jason Mraz (“Wordplay”) and Spin Doctor[s] (“Two Princes”) are phenomenal. Five For Fighting’s “100 Years” is a serious tear-jerker...reminding us how life really does fly by before you know it. [...]"
The CD is only available via Starbucks in the US states of Oregon and Washington or through starbucks.com. Very limited quantity (ca. 10.000).
