When I popped this CD in at work for the first time, I listened to it probably 20 times in one week, never tiring of its energy and positive spirit. Love it! Highly recommend it! Great stuff! Highlight for me is both versions of Fireflies!

This is every bit as phenomenal as his first CD. The showtunes bring a huge smile to my face and the classical pieces give me goosebumps. If you were to buy any one instrumental CD, this should be it! No questions asked.
Josh Wright is polished.

A few years back, I was feeling bad for the LDS community that we didn't seem to have really good talent. Josh Wright is REALLY GOOD TALENT! This CD combines intense classical training with enjoyable melodies. While the Piano Guys are entertaining and funny; Josh Wright is an Alfred Brendel or an Alexis Weissenerg. Thank you Josh for your dedication to your talent. I am so glad that you haven't left classical behind.
Josh Wright has really fast fingers.

I have both My Favorite Things and Josh Wright, and they are phenomenal CDs. His music is beautiful, and his arrangements which combine two different songs are brilliant. Exceptional talent!
