Pianist Michael Bluestein provides the perfect soundtrack for relaxing to exquisite piano jazz. Twelve songs curb your appetite for just being able to hear the finest nuances in such songs as McCoy Tyner's "Effendi" and Bluestein's jazz rendition of Cat Stevens' "Wild World." Michael Bluestein's pure sound and simple form are the keys to his incredibly clever combination of excellent improvisations and aural options on the title track and "Bridge Over Troubled Waters." This is a stellar self-produced debut and hopefully is portentous of great music yet to come.
