"Yet, for all the playfulness found on Shades of Love - notably in upbeat renditions of standards such as "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To and Jobim's One Note Samba - she admits the real Kim Kaskiw is to be found beneath the achingly beautiful, poignant shades of melancholy that drive her lone and original contribution, Here And Now." The above review by Sun Showbiz columnist Allan Wigney revealed a side of Kim Kaskiw's music that was reminiscent of the acquiesced sadness of a Dorothy Dandridge. Without a doubt, and as is often the case with the most talented people, Kaskiw's life story is reflected in the pensive adagio of her musical storytelling that at once is both light yet heartfelt. Almost paradoxically, her tone simultaneously pulls you outward towards the opposite ends of the emotional extremities of happiness and sadness, as she herself retreats within her own experiences and memories like the delicate petals of a beautiful flower at dusk. In a far beyond the stars, near beyond the moon accessibility, one is certain that any time spent with Kaskiw is an ephemeral experience that will leave a lasting and indelible imprint on the listener's heart. Join me this evening as I welcome Kim Kaskiw to talk, sing and yes share her shades of love with you.
