A haunting tune from one of the top albums of 2012. A startling amount of emotion emanates from this quiet production. Themes of loss, and based on writings of literary figures, Siskind's trio offers a terrifically evocative recording. Highly recommended.
About the Album

Personnel: Jeremy Siskind (piano), Lucas Pino (woodwinds), and Nancy Harms (vocals).
