Press Clipping

DUENDE LIBRE/Drift: The great thing about impressionistic and conceptual pieces is you can attribute any meaning you want to them. Here we find this Seattle instrumental crew doffing the cap to Pangaea, but the real thing going on here is how everything is all connected. Mostly sounding like forward thinking cocktail jazz from a piano bar where the pianist is encouraged to do more than play "Misty" every night, this trio often takes you to places you've only heard in dreams. Very much a solidly conceived recital of a date, it may burn on low heat but it burns nonetheless. Well done.
