Announcing the latest CD from International Steinway Artist Jim McDonough, entitled Broadway Dreams.

This brand-new release is filled with fourteen beautiful Broadway hits from a dozen Tony Award-winning musicals -- all performed in McDonough’s signature solo piano style.

I’ve recorded many Broadway hits on previous albums, but have long dreamed of a CD entirely dedicated to these stirring melodies. It’s finally here, with fourteen brand-new recordings of Broadway’s finest."
