Album Notes
In the follow-up to her debut trio recording, "So Glad To Be Here", pianist and composer Leslie Pintchik returns on her new SACD "Quartets" with two different quartets. The powerful band-mates from her debut CD return - Scott Hardy on bass and Satoshi Takeishi on percussion. Added to the mix on the new CD are the superb - and deservedly acclaimed - saxophonist Steve Wilson, as well as the exceptional drummer Mark Dodge. The project, which once again features Pintchik's strong original compositions, as well as three unusual arrangements of well-known standards, packs a rich array of feeling into 56 minutes.

All the extraordinary color and nuances of the two different quartets are captured beautifully using Sony's Direct Stream Digital (DSD) technology. "Quartets" is released as a multichannel Hybrid SACD, featuring a 5.0 surround sound mix, along with the standard stereo mix. As a hybrid SACD, the disk may be played on any standard CD player.

“…enormous gifts as a composer, arranger and pianist." — All Music Guide

"...an adept interpreter of American Songbook classics and a composer of beautifully melodic tunes... "
"...an unabashed search for beauty."

Oustanding! I have Ms. Pintchik's last CD as well, and the compositions and playing are a step forward from that excellent work. The addition of Steve Wilson expands the group's sound palette in a fresh way. The sound on the recording is clear and warm.
