  • Description

    New York-based pianist/composer Mark Soskin, following the successful previous (his first SteepleChase release) trio album 'Hearts and Minds', returns to the studio with his dream rhythm section in pursuit of perfecting the art of piano trio jazz. "Here he is on his own ballgame as the leader of a vital, fine interacting trio...Soskin has a beautiful touch, a lyrical temper with unfailing ease. The music feels timeless and fresh as it often does when the recording session starts with the first take in house and completes in three and half hours," - Ole Matthiessen, Jazz Special on 'Hearts and Minds' (SCCD31834) "This is a very mindful session and holds the mind from beginning to end." - Robert D. Rusch, Papatamus on 'Hearts and Minds' (SCCD31834) Personnel: Mark Soskin (piano), Jay Anderson (bass), Adam Nussbaum (drums)
