Fiona's Comments

Stunning track. A ballad arises from a deep well of spiritual jazz, and just takes flight. Wow. Highly recommended.

The project contains 3 new originals by Ernie (including Oasis), 1 each from his pianist Christof Saenger and his drummer Heinrich Koebberling, classics by John Coltrane, Joe Sample, Johnny Mandel, Lennon/McCartney, and bebop from Dizzy and Bird--a deep oasis of music.
