Peter Jones For a modern jazz album, this really has something special - it's subtle and mellow as well as having skill and complexity. A very chilled listening experience. Favorite track: Peace.

Mihai Sorohan This is the kind of album that you fall in love with on the first listen. Very well orchestrated, the tracks flow very natural after each-other and each musician in the band "brings on the table" a different feel that put a new light on the track.
A "must listen" and a "must have". Favorite track: One Life Left.

“One Life Left” is new cool jazz for the 21st, with lots of odd quirky eccentricities to boot.
Some album highlights include “Peace” with its classic mid-90s trip-hop down tempo beat and lush vibratoed chords on the electric piano, and “Suriname” which opens with smooth horn orchestrations backing an exotic synth melody that recalls the old Don Ellis experimental big band. This is a very creative and well executed album. To the serious post bop fan this CD may seem a little light, but these players are not light weight at all, they just prefer to keep their cool, with their tongues planted in cheek.

It has been a long time since we had a decent jazz album featured in Audio Camp. this little gem from Romania by Iordache has it all: from jazz to groove & funk. (Audiocamp)

Very cool tune. Burns and swings, catchy and uplifting. Bonus points for Pac-Man inspiration. Recommended. (Editor's comment on "Triangle" at All About Jazz)
