Incredible

Some of the most incredible music written in our era. His mix of compositional understanding and jazz harmony comes together in a breathtaking way. With obvious influence from Hindemith and post-romantic music of the classical genus, his Herbie-esque style comes through in the incredible harmonies. The Path among the Trees is my personal favorite on the track, I've listened to it close to 100 times. Next, I absolutely love Pavane, a tune mixing his classical and jazz background. one of the best albums of our era, without a doubt.

Deserves to be heard

I heard "Prelude In E Minor" on a streaming jazz station out of Denver recently, and I knew I had to have this. Thank goodness iTunes offers it; the CD appears to be out of print.

The balance of the album exceeded all my expectations. This is incredibly moving and organic stuff: some of the most wondrous and beautiful modern music I've ever been lucky enough to encounter.

Perfectionist's Note: There is a rare moment or two where the strings' intonation gets a little off, but it's hard to tell if it's accidental or intentional. Frankly, most listeners would not notice, and the moments are very fleeting for those who do.

This album is going to stay in my rotation for quite some time. Highly, highly recommended.
