Fiona's Comments

Sublime ballad, woodwinds twisting upward and soaring above. Absolutely beautiful, reminiscent of the quiet languor from Koppel's Adventures of a Polar Expedition. Fans of ECM should pay close attention, but really, this should appeal to fans in most jazz sub-groups.

About the Album

Taken from one of Charlie Mariano's last releases, Blues & Ballads, this track, composed by Benjamin Koppel, is the definition of a melancholic ballad. Mariano and Koppel are backed by Jacob Karlzon (p), Jesper Lundgaard (b) and Alex Riel (d).
