"Laurie Z.'s music has the pianistic touches of Chopin, the ornaments of Baroque, the sophistication and the grace of classical piano music; yet her structures and harmonies follow the verse-chorus structures of Elton John's music and the type of contemporary piano music many students love to play.” ~ Penka Kouneva, Hollywood Film Composer and Orchestrator

REVIEW - "Heart of the Holidays is a celebration of the season that wells up from deep within, and rings forth in each and every cut on this joyous recording. From the stunning keyboard work on traditional classics such as "Bring a Torch" and "Little Drummer Boy," to the unexpected syncopation of "What Child Is This?" and the lighthearted reverence of the "Carol of the Bells," Laurie breathes remarkable life and feeling into familiar tunes. Included are creative new interpretations of traditional Chanukah songs ""Mo'oz Tsur" and "Sivivon," along with two new original numbers that easily hold their own next to songs we all know by heart. Listeners will walk away humming the melodies of the title tune and "Warmth From Within," which was written for the beautiful album cover oil painting by renowned artist Jesse Anderson. Playful touches are included, like special guest, actor Jack Palance singing "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus". And then topping it all off is Jack Palance's delightful reading of "The Night Before Christmas".... The emotional centerpiece of the album has to be the stunning medley of John Lennon's "Imagine" and "Happy Xmas", featuring vocals by special guests Michael Carter, Guy Tanner and the Heart Choir. Clearly, this is more than just another Christmas CD. In fact, Heart of the Holidays is exactly what we need ….. - a heartfelt reminder of the enduring joy of the season and of the human spirit.

HEART OF THE HOLIDAYS covers some of the top Christmas classics and two Chanukah songs with contemporary arrangements by Laurie Z.

Although the principal focus is a showcase for Laurie’s amazing keyboard abilities, it’s a nice mix of pop, classical, and new age, with a delightful sense of humor. Playful touches are included, like special guest, actor Jack Palance singing "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" and insertion of a snippet of Adam Sandler's "Chanukah Song" into the grand finale.  Topping it all off is Jack Palance's delightful reading of "The Night Before Christmas.”
