A cd worth your money, baby. Daniela Schachter's great compositions and marvello
A cd worth your money, baby. Daniela Schachter's great compositions and marvellous pianism are a real strong source of inspiration. Wonderfully spontaneus interplay between the musicians within such cool arrangements! A journey made of facinating transitions and intriguing harmonies. Daniela's work involved my heart and hears in its search for beauty and truth. I hear the Mediterranean Sea waves along with the influence of my favourite jazz masters.This Album is a must in your jazz collection!
