Fiona's Comments

This album merits discussion for inclusion of top ten of the year. Absolutely stunning to see the word "debut" associated with an album of this caliber. Strength of the play is apparent from the opening notes, but its the compositions, seemingly complex while thoroughly straight ahead on their face, that sells me on this album over and over. Highly recommended. Yet one more incredible album released by the Sunnyside label.
