I will be the first to admit this was not my kind of CD. I had to really keep an open mind listening to it. Since this was not my normal style of music I had to look at it from the point of view of someone who might enjoy this. Here is what I came up with.
A few words to describe this CD would be classy, smooth, crisp, wonderfully played, and meaningful. The way the instruments played so smoothly and in sync was joyous to listen to. The piano, the trumpets, and all the great instruments were well played. Check it out!
Here are the track listings.
