All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Many jazz pianists desire to record with strings at least one time in their careers. Such is the case on this CD by pianist Danilo Perez with arrangements by Claus Ogerman who previously worked on recording projects with Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson, among others.

The jazz group, which includes bassist Christian McBride, drummer Lewis Hash, and percussionist Luis Quintero, plays acceptably but also often defers to the strings.
