Review: This is a birthday present for pianist Piket’s husband, drummer Billy Mintz. Mintz writes simple and distinctively quirky tunes. Piket interprets these for solo piano with a devotional zest, and with obvious love. A spin through Mintz' discography reveals his "outside" approach to composition. For her part, Piket has been described as an outside/inside artist. On this disc, she brings the Mintz sound closer to the inside, revealing the simple beauty of Mintz’s tunes.
