“Elevated by the pillars of mystique and mournfulness, this statement proves beautifully gripping.” – All About Jazz

For his first album on Origin, veteran New York vibraphonist Dan McCarthy gathers with some of the most creative and interesting improvisors in jazz – violinist Mark Feldman, bassist Steve Swallow and guitarist Ben Monder. Crafting an elegant program of impressionistic originals, McCarthy uses them to highlight the unique color and texture of the instrumentation, along with these master performer’s eloquent use of mood, subtlety, timbre and patience. Sharing sonic territory with classic albums by Eberhard Weber, or several of John Abercrombie’s ECM recordings, McCarthy’s new offering engages with disarming beauty.

“An extraordinary musical ability and a boundless imagination” – Gary Burton.
