Album Notes
This piano trio Cd is Sumi' Tonookas second outing with CANDID records, featuring Rufus Reid on bass and Lewis Nash on drums. Her originals are first rate, and stand up beautifully to her arrangments of well chosen standards from Duke Ellington , Billy Strayhorn and John Coltrane.

excerpts from Liner nts by Brian Priestly

"When Sumi TOnooka's first Candid series was released last year (Taking TimeCD79502) I freely admit that I had not heard of her before and was genuinely impressed that someone so"unknown" had arrived on such a respected specialist record-label. But ultimately I was far more impressed that this"new" pianist was capable of creating such fresh, open, lyrical compositions, and of improvising on them and on standard material in a distinctive but no-nonsense manner."
