"I got this cd after hearing the track Triste on NPR one night, and Ill admit that it could possibly be one of my favorite jazz tracks of all time.This cd gets more spins than any other jazz cd I have in my collection of over 30 cd's. I think this cd is the epicenter of Claudio's work.I have all the rest of his cds and I think this is the most solidly inspiring cd and extremely tight musicianship he has or anyone else has to offer for that matter. The collection of players he has assembled from different sessions just absolutely hit on all cylinders on every track of this cd.I think he is such an underrated trumpet player, due to the fact he doesnt go the virtuoso route and try to remain the main focus of the music, he plays off the the other musicians and they play off him and it works amazingly well on here.This cd should be played in the finest dinner clubs in the world,period."
