"I really think this guy is great. Apparently so did downbeat magazine. Get this CD! -- Down Beat (10/95, pp.45-46) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good/Excellent - "SECRETS belongs to a small, specified jazz genre: the piano trio minimally augmented by horn and string ensemble....Bob Belden's arrangements frame the trio with elegant openings and closings, and also create subtle shadings and transitions within the body of each song..."
Personnel: Joey Calderazzo (piano); Tim Ries (soprano saxophone, flute); Charlie Pillow (tenor saxophone, English horn, bass clarinet); Tim Hagans (trumpet, flugelhorn); Earl McIntyre (bass trombone, tuba); John Clark (French horn); Tomas Ulrich (cello); Fareed Haque (guitar); James Genus (bass); Clarence Penn (drums). Recorded at Systems Two, Brooklyn, New York on January 26-27 1995. Includes liner notes by Bill Kohlhaase. All songs written by Joey Calderazzo except "Scriabin" (Vince Mendoza) and "Filles De Kilimanjaro" (Miles Davis)."

"One of the first things to note about this album is that it is an audiophile recording made live direct to two track analog by an excellent company, Audioquest. It bathes you in the sound to a degree rare among Jazz recordings. The performances are mostly first rate. On the few selections where Calderazzo plays alone with his trio, he really burns up the joint. The other selections feature arrangements by Bob Belden. They are very evocative, using Jazz and Classical instruments. Occasionally I wish they would give Calderazzo more room to improvise. Nevertheless, this is a beautifully recorded album by excellent musicians and it gave me a lot of pleasure."
