No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

Pianist Ernesto Diaz-Infante composed these 25 short pieces while he was an artist in residence at the “Ucross Foundation Ranch” located in Wyoming. On Ucross Journal, Diaz-Infante creates briefly stated tone poems while utilizing space and depth to his advantage, as he indicates in the liners: “A strong sense of location and the influence of a particular setting are vital to my work”. Throughout, these pieces are interwoven and somewhat contiguous as vivid imagery of the beautiful Wyoming landscape is interpreted through peaceful, quiet and to a degree – introspective and somber passages. Here, Mr. Diaz-Infante celebrates the earth we inhabit as this writer contemplated the fantastic black & white portraits of the western landscape by the late photographer Ansel Adams. In summary, Ucross Journal is serene, airy, subliminally gorgeous and is certain to capture one’s imagination via Diaz-Infante’s lucid portrayal of this very special place! * * * *
