Review: What a delightful album! Not pushing any boundaries but so easy to listen to and I don't mean that condescending genre - Easy Listening - under which label some of those record stores still standing hide their jazz content. It serves as an example that jazz in 2018 doesn't have to be all guts and gore. Rodriguez is fluid and agile on soprano sax producing an almost clarinet-like sound that relates easily to the album's title. As well as his composing skills, Shulman is a fine pianist.
