Press reviews

On this truly international set, pianist Brad Mehldau leads a stellar quartet that includes saxophonist Perico Sambeat as well as his regular partners Jordi and Mario Rossy in a Barcelona, Spain performance. What is engrossing about the disc is the utter fluidity with which these four young musicians from varying backgrounds are able to communicate using the common language of standard songs. [...] The group swings effortlessly, sharing in a mutual give-and-take that only well studied students of the art can achieve. What's more, the on-the-spot feel of the performance captures the players without any pretenses about being too perfect for the microphone. The results are as close to an in-person recreation as can be had."
