Reviews / Comments

“The integration of reeds and jazz quartet is picture-perfect, cinematic in scope and often breathtakingly beautiful.” - JazzTimes

BRUBECKS TO BRING THEIR MAGIC TO WEIR FARM:
"As Brubeck explains, his "Vignettes for Nonet" has 'one foot squarely planted in the classical world as a woodwind quintet piece and the other foot firmly tapping in the jazz universe of improvisation.'"
