This beautifully recorded, rich-toned album mingles the bustle of Manhattan with such back-to-nature charms as “B is For Butterfly” and “When the Sun Comes Up”. Pianist Eliane Elias’s confident delivery and light touch are captured at their best, morphing lush impressionism into a late-night blues, adding Eastern-accented inflections to a Latin cruise and delivering a valedictory tribute to the late Michael Brecker – saxophonist Joe Lovano a sensitive guest. Marc Johnson’s resonant, double bass follows each shift and turn, his unaccompanied “Shenandoah” a moving finale.
