Diana Panton's voice is as fresh as a daisy, enchanting in its directness, and perfectly suited to the songs she's chosen for "I Believe In Little Things". There's a child in each of us, and Panton and her longtime musical companions have that child in the palm of their musical hand. In her approach to Willy Wonka's "Pure Imagination" and 13 other dreamy tunes, the Canadian singer defines tonal sweetness and purity of expression. Whether singing in English or in French, Panton's voice glides ever soothingly. Torontonians Reg Schwager on guitar and Don Thompson on vibes, bass and piano, and Coenraad Bloemendal on cello are quietly authoritative musicians.
