A welcome, upbeat, fusion-y album leaning to the jazz side, deftly flirting in the smooth mode of a Grant Geissman or Spyro Gyra, but also occasionally venturing farther out --very satisfyingly-- to the atmospheric realms of Metheny/Scofield or Return to Forever. Daniel and crew are very evidently simpatico; no noodling here, only purpose and cohesion... and joy. My ONLY quibble: I'd love to hear more than 42 minutes of this! But there's always the "Repeat" option... hey, it worked for me! 😉 Favorite track: K4Y.
Daniel’s 1st outright jazz airing. An eclectic set of exciting and refreshing tracks, with many changes of mood and pace. Ensemble playing of remarkable synergy, with the core team - Iggy, Yaniv, and Yogev - and the old ‘Square to Check’ Team too. He is the most self-effacing and generous of musicians, as his tutorial students will attest; this underpins the shared inspiration that shines here. Daniel’s jazz energies have been brewing for a while now. It has definitely been worth the wait. Favorite track: K4Y.
Lovers of jazz, fusion, prog, whatever - forget the labels, give this a listen or three, and enjoy hearing contemporary music at it's best - and grab a copy - musicians have to eat too!
A delight from beginning to end, I recommend this album for any discerning listener, appreciative of good music played well, regardless of genre.
Daniel encourages his students to 'find their own voice' - Daniel has definitely found his with this album.
Favorite track: Earth.
This album has allowed me to deep DIVE within. The song, "Land of The Dreamers" provides me with some special vibes to sway along to. For me this album is an experience to indulge and involve myself into. Every second of it is just Top Class, such a prized possession, indeed. I am in total awe, of the way this album unfolds. Favorite track: Land of The Dreamers..
Creative, inspiring, and masterfully performed modern jazz/fusion, complete with great compositions and excellent production as well. Quite an awesome first album purchase of 2021 and highly recommended. Favorite track: K4Y.
