Original Recording Format: DSD 64

One thing that makes the music on this recording exceptional is of course that it could only have been played by these four musicians. Each one is an individual with his own sound, his own approach to improvising and each has his own musical experience to draw from. Another thing that makes it remarkable is the attitude and inspiration of the quartets leader and composer. Eric leads without dominating, sharing his compositions and ideas with his partners in such a way that allows each one the freedom to contribute their own ideas and inventions to the whole. Last, but not least, Eric’s wonderfully adventurous trumpet playing and his humanity.

Press reviews

HRAudio.net

Sympathetic support from a multinational rhythm section of Italian bassist Furio di Castro, (the late, great) British pianist John Taylor and American drummer Joe LaBarbera, highlights Vloeimans’ thoughtful and economical solos.

HRAudio.net 5 out of 5

Safer to say that Eric Vloeimans’ compositions fall on the lyrical-romantic side of modern European jazz. (…) He manages not to sound exactly like any particular forebear, and this is no small accomplishment.

The drums, bass, trumpet and piano are all well-positioned in the room and blend naturally into a very realistic presentation.

A generous 72 minutes of intelligent music makes this release worth a space on the jazz shelf.

Performance: 4,5 stars
Sonics: 5 stars
