    Nice review, John. You make a listener want to listen more deeply.

    Cheers, Robert

    Thanks so much, Robert, I can think of very few compliments that would mean as much - or make me as happy. Much appreciated.

    Very Nice John.

    Just want to respectfully add a few corrections, which I just can't let pass: not all the pieces are brand new, "A Shifting Design" appeared originally on "The Next Step" (Verve, 2000). And the pianist featured in "The Remedy" is NOT Aaron Parks, but rather, Aaron Goldberg. You can verify this in Mark F. Turner's review of that album, extracted from this very website: For further verification, here's the info on the album on Rosenwinkel's own website:

    Hope this helps to correct this omissions, and hope you don't mind this. This is just to avoid sending misleading information to your readers. Happy Holidays to all of the AAJ team!

    All I can say is Yoikes! and Mea Culpa. I reviewed The Remedy and all I can say is: brain cramp. I'll correct immediately. Same re Shifting Design....frankly, I normally do much better fact-checking, and am pretty embarrassed about this, but appreciate your raising it in a gentle fashion. Many thanks.

    Hopefully, beyond those factoids you found it a worthwhile review....

    Now, to get to those corrections....<groan>

    Oh, I definitely enjoyed the review! I apologize if I made it sound like I didn't, which certainly wasn't the case. I just thought it would be important to make a note of those few corrections. It's pretty common to get the names of both "Aarons" mixed up all the time, since they're both pianists. It's definitely not the first time I've seen that happen, so, it's all good. The important thing is to get records like this noticed, and the fact that you and all the other fine journalists here at AAJ are doing such an important job and putting this to the public's attention is certainly much appreciated. I've followed this website very closely for several years now, and I'm definitely an AAJ fan. Thanks for your kind reply and for taking these corrections under consideration. Most journalists wouldn't have even bothered replying, so, I really appreciate your comments. Happy holidays!
