There's really nothing "distant" about Errol's superb jazz vibraphone work on this excellent release... I've loved his work ever since I reviewed his group in issue # 155, and this album makes that impression even stronger... he's joined by a stellar cast of players... Lubomir Gospodinov - Tenor sax and Soprano sax; David Leon - Alto sax; Martin Bejerano - Piano; Peter Slavov - Acoustic bass and Ludwig Afonso - Drums all work together beautifully to transport the listener to jazz Nirvana, especially on songs like the 6:13 "The Dream Of The Little Gypsy"... airy and light, but bubbling with the spirit of life and the living of it! If you're looking for music that's beat-driven, you'll just love Ludwig's dynamic drumming on "Attitude Problem" as did I. I knew, from the opening notes of "Odd Times", the opening salvo on the album, that it would be my pick for personal favorite, though... what this song has that (many) others don't is some of the most fluid group movement you will ever listen to... just SUPERB playing! I give Errol and his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of a (perfect) 5.00... meaning that this album also gets my "PICK" for "best vibraphone jazz album".
