CD Reviews

Opinions are good, but.....
Albert Porter | New York, NY United States | 11/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I guess David Weitz really doesn't like this CD. That much has been established - TWICE! Once again, the comparisons to Weather Report are just plain LAZY. He says, "listen to the original version of "Boogie Woogie Waltz" - it's far superior" OF COURSE IT IS, SILLY!! It's the original! You still haven't addressed Christian on his own path. For goodness sakes, this is not his only CD. He now has, I think 5. Are you saying none of his 5 are worthy of compositional praise? Herbie Hancock and Pat Metheny both have said he was a fine composer. You gonna argue with them? I dare you."
Must Own

"Many may disagree that this is a must own, but I can't live without it. I saw these guys play live at the Dakota in St. Paul, MN and they are amazing. This has some of the best techinical playing and beautiful composition I have heard. All of my jazz heads love it, and my jazz-hating girlfriend will listen to it. You can't not groove to it. Keezer will blow your mind on the keys, Christian keeps the groove like the bass should, and the drums fit like a dream. The sax isn't the best, but it is more than made up for. Definately worth your money."
Nothing but the Best

(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great CD, with great music and great musicians.
Very similair to Weather Report, but still has its own vibe to it.
My personal favorites are Techincolor Nightmare, The Ballad of the Little Dancer Girl, and the brilliant cover of Boogie Woogie Waltz."
