Intimate beauty and stylistic clarity: these are fundamental characteristics of the six pieces on this album. Every tone is understated. The music radiates a quiet beauty with a tender, enchanting atmosphere. Extraordinarily refined jazz compositions - sublime, restrained, with nuance in every tone. Music with a deep inner life - a life in which screams are not necessary; the music’s quiet intensity says all that needs to be said. Musik from John Ruocco.
