The second of the solo piano CDs recorded by Kenny Werner for Steeplechase, this release shows off Werner's considerable talent as a composer as well as showcasing his incredible technique. His three "Meditations" are very lyrical, soft ballads, while "Melodee No. 2" (dedicated to Mel Lewis) is both haunting and playful.

Highly recommended.
