Gli arrangiamenti sono eleganti, equilibrati e ricchi di colore con Pugach che ha il merito di non sovresporre il suo ruolo di batterista nelle dinamiche orchestrali. Nel percorso musicale non mancano momenti originali, alcuni con la presenza della brava vocalist moglie del leader: il torrido blues in 12/8 "Our Blues," il ricercato "Coming Here" (con ottimi interventi di Ingrid Jensen al flicorno e Jeremy Powell al tenore) e "Crystal Silence," dove Nicole Zuraitis evidenzia la sua bella voce soprano.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
