Patrick Leonard
Rounder Records

Composed as an improvisational memory of a fishing trip, this CD contains nine original jazz instrumentals performed on piano by Patrick Leonard himself and with contributions from bassist John Pettitucci, percussionist Luis Conte and cellist Sachi Pettitucci.

The music is divine, soothing, relaxing, elegant, emotional and inspiring. Some of the passages remind me of Keith Jarrett's masterpiece, the Koln Concert while others are effervescent improvisations full of meditative introspection. This is one of those records that you will treasure and play over and over again in search of tranquility and refuge from the stressful day. A classic for your ears and soul.
