Single Layer Stereo SACD
Acclaimed jazz trio's second release!
"Leonhart's solos are consistently interesting, drizzled with wit, and the ever-lyrical Charlap provides rarely heard verses to six of these nine classic tunes. The CD will please those who like their jazz served straight up and pared down to essentials; its simplicity is deceptive, given the level of expertise and feeling throughout." — Judith Schlesinger, AllMusic.com
