The album sounds more finished than any other Jazz release of this year (or even decade). All songs start good and than get better, going to the dimension of perfection. The bass player is amazing and pushes the vibe to another energy level.

Sounds like the musicians understand each other without any rehearsal and the sound engineer was feelin' enlightened.

Conclusion: Beautiful spiritual soul jazz record with an excellent pressing.

The album doesn't sound finished, many songs start good and then get lost very quickly, going nowhere. The bass player is especially terrible and ruins the vibe way too often.

Sounds like musicians didn't reherse hard enough and the sound engineer was feelin' lazy.
