Album Review

Elegant chamber jazz, a very classical-music feel. Trio of sax/clarinet, piano, and cello, the latter two in academic conservatory mode. But this still swings. There's an element of beat, swing, and even fun to modern chamber music; they capture that element and blend it with jazz standards and ideas. Folks looking for Latin jazz among the Spanish titles might be disappointed -- no percussion-heavy party music here -- but give it a try. There's a charming retro-'50s feel to the session. Picture it as soundtrack to an old Hollywood movie.

1- Bright and bouncy
2- Smoothly mid/slow waltz. Wistful, delicate.
3- Perky mid/fast
4- Fast steeplechase version of "Tunisia." A highlight.
5- Graceful. Slow at first, picks up later.
6- Cello solo! Fast and percussive, a bit folky
7- Sneaky fast patter,
8- Fast, minor key, some nice sax soloing
9- Solo sax. Bluesy, free, fairly fast
10- Upbeat and not that slow
11- Charming small piece, nostalgic New Orleans feel
12- Playful and bright, with fairly fast pecking. Slow middle.
