Exquisite arrangements, choice selections, and an excellent ensemble of musicians help to propel this session to even higher ground. One of the real treats throughout the recording, are the airy offerings of flautist Michel Gentile whose solos are stylized and reminiscent of the great Eric Dolphy. Reedman Mat Renzi delivers depth and soul as pianist Dave Kikoski provides spirit with challenging comps and soloing on selections like ‘(A jump In) Quicksand’. Michael Formanek keeps it all together with his deep robust sound that solidifies why he is one of the most talented jazz bassists today. Two selections feature violinist Miri Ben–Ari who performs with fire and heart. Garcia’s talent, skill, and energy, on Place of Resonance, provides a musical healing balm that any true jazz fan should apply and enjoy. Highly recommend.
