Peter Jones A much more open jazz session than earlier albums - Erskine's approach let's it happen. He drums like he's just tapping his fingers along to great music -- and sounds like the best drummer in the world, just so natural.

As ever, the rest of the band excel - all the music is gorgeous and skilfully executed by fantastic musicians, although sometimes a bit on the light side for my personal tastes. Still, lots to love.

Randroid so nearly made it to favourite.... Favorite track: España.

Steve Lawson I'm a big fan of Janek's playing and writing. The Space Between was exquisite, and this, while a different kind of record, is up there too. Crazy cast of musicians too - Alan Pasqua may well be my favourite pianist on the planet... Favorite track: Erdnase.

Ed Buckley This is a very nice jazz recording, and the opening pieces border on the operatic. As I have more than one favorite, I'll start where I should, at the beginning. Favorite track: Erdnase.
