Fiona's Comments

Like driving through downtown during 5pm rush hour traffic, this song cruises, comes to abrupt stops, seamlessly picks up speed again, and navigates through streets filled with city lights and excited crowds headed out into the night. I typically only feature new releases (this song is Jan 2010), but when I heard this brilliant album, I emailed Rafal ASAP and invited him on board. Truly inspired jazz guitar and deserves a spot on my Best of 2011 list. Enjoy!
