An Original Jazz Piece...
Patrick Ergas | Wellington, New Zealand | 11/25/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album was the 1st of Lyle Ritz i bought, and i was very pleasantly surprised. In fact any Jazz Lover listening to this Jazz Ukelele would find this CD a real treat for the ears. Tasteful music, very fresh and free, elegantly performed, the spontaneous touch... yet not a flaw; in the hands of Masters at work together there; perfect accompaniments with the flute and drums, from what i can recall at the moment while writing this simple review. The harmonies and sounds in this CD will make you travel somewhere exotic, intriguing and exciting, yet all straightforward, that is for sure. Lyle Ritz is an innovator, by simply using an instrument such as the Ukelele and placing it out of its habitual 'Hawaiian' context, using it daringly, magnificently and very skilfully for Jazz Music. I highly recommend this CD, it is original and different, and if you're into Jazz anyway, it certainly cannot disappoint you!!!
I yet have to find out what else there is available out there from Lyle Ritz, and i'm starting my search as of NOW, hehe... Just found out that his latest CD was released in June 2006. As far as i am concerned this is a sure Buy, so sure thing it is ordered today!!!"
