    "Heart of Tales" is a collection of original instrumental ballads, all of them on the subject of love and its endless vicissitudes. Created by master musician and composer Rocky Tatarelli and featuring Rocky's powerful, unforgettable tenor sax sound — each tune, accompanied by its own distinctive instrumental background, conveys to the listener a single moment in the story of a romance. This powerful and unique collection starts and ends with "The Love Letter," an expressive ballad whose initially simple theme becomes gradually more and more complex as it winds its way through the two versions, effectively starting and ending the collection (and the story) with extended variations on the original theme. Rocky's rich, emotional unforgettable sound effectively creates single yet linked moments that form the story of this deeply complex romance.
