"A thoughtful yet energetic album of all-original material from Spanish saxophonist Verde. Its sometimes gently unfolding, liquid themes such as the opening Chamán or Cuando El Corazón can be delivered in voicings of translucent beauty, but there is also a tart toughness of purposive phrasing and chromatic colouring to enjoy, as on the piano-sparked El Talon Del Leviatan. Guitar, trumpet and clarinet are added to some tracks, enhancing the overall appeal of a strikingly soulful album, which marries improvisational verve and reflective arrangement to fine effect."
