breathing it in
breath is a musical journey which took me into a soundscape of fantastic pianistic virtuosity and sensitivity as well as deep grooves.. the interplay among the musicians is intuitive and generous. i really dig this band and the compositons that they play. encore. bravo.

Don't overlook this one !
THE surprise of the year ! Jeff Gardner's "Breath" is trio music at it's absolute BEST. If you love an interactive,dynamic, swinging and often beautifully eclectic approach to piano trio, then this CD is it. Needless to say that the 3 artists are all in the first rank of their instruments. Bravo !
