5.0 out of 5 stars inventive and engaging, June 7 2002
This has quickly become one of my favorite jazz records. Latin-flavored rhythms are always shifting and changing, demanding your attention. The performances are superb. This is really a showcase for Avishai Cohen, even more so than his own solo albums.
The three form one cohesive unit, it seems as though they are reading each others' minds - the interplay and development of musical ideas happens among the three of them as though every note were written down ahead of time, but it always sounds spontaneous.
This album grabbed my attention from the very beginning and didn't let go until the bitter end. I enjoyed every minute of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely performances, April 22 2002
Lovely, energetic, committed performances of these works. Consistent high quality playing throughout. Everything is refined and polished to the nth degree. A great example of orchestral playing in the baroque style. Recording quality leaves nothing to be desired - absolutely clear and transparent.
