This CD is a highlight, a wordless communication among musicians who’d already played with one another on numerous occasions. It’s a music characterized by a high degree of virtuosity and reserve; the nearly somnambulistic interaction is articulated by a playful give and take. In this recording, musical instinct guides both the musicians and the listener through a multitude of stylistic allusions, in which only the most necessary elements—a melody, a loose arrangement—are laid down in order to restrict the creative flow as little as possible.
