The debut of Cologne drummer Christian Thome.  This release lends a variety of styles from classic jazz instrumentals, a little world music sound and the crooning of an English female singer by the name of Sam Leigh Brown.

Thome’s musical short story allows solo work of the band without letting it “become virtuoso personality performances.”  These qualified jazz musicians are aware of the possibilities between the jazz standards and free improvisation.

This release will appeal to the mainstream and contains a good mix..  When the CD was over, I wanted more of Brown’s crooning.   Good CD. - Robin Taylor
