Description

After her two highly successful albums for Enja 'If' feat. Dino Saluzzi and 'Where is There' feat. Jacques Morelenbaum, it was time for Myriam's third production of her unique, some-times joyful, sometimes melancholic but always Mediterranean tinged music.

The ensemble was selected for the sound it would provide, placing the accordion into a central spot, which is greatly filled by Italian Luciano Biondini, the leading virtuoso of his instrument today. US clarinetist John Ruocco fullfills an important soloist's role as he did on the previous albums and Belgian bassist Nic Thys impresses with his strong acoustic bass foundation. The liquid tuba of Belgian Michel Massot will be a discovery for many as will be the creative percussion by young Dutch Landers Gyselinck, who is making a name for himself in both the jazz and the avant-garde rock scenes. Italian Michel Bisceglia provides subtle, crisp piano solos and his arrangements support the compositions so well.

At the very end of this exciting production Myriam sat down at the piano and played spontaneously a short solo piece dedicated to her old friend Mal Waldron. Nothing could end this fantastic session any better.
