This CD captures some of what people who love John’s playing have been admiring for years. Each track here is a little concerto with its own mood, tempo, and instrumentation. The CD seems too short – even when you play it twice, as I did on first hearing. John says, “I purposely picked some tunes that aren´t traditionally vibes and clarinet tunes although we have enough on the project to satisfy anyone.” From the notes by Michael Steinman, creator of the jazz blog Jazz Lives<.i>
