Young's cheerful "Waltz for Nanami" suggests the inevitable happiness of a young child at the dawn of a new day. All in all, this is a fine effort that demands a follow-up recording.

    Excellent

    These people obviously love what they are doing and interact in a way that is refreshing to hear. The grooves and solos are just incredible. I love how this group makes even their most complicated ideas sound easy and not contrived. I can't stop listening to this, nor do I want to. The audio quality of this recording is excellent. 6 stars
