East-European virtuosity and soul merges with the spirit of modern jazz. The amazing Hungarian violist-violinist Csaba Deseo was a member of the Budapest National Philharmonic (1967-99) and played with the likes of Menuhin and Rostropovich. His jazz credentials include work with John Lewis, and Jean-Luc Ponty. German Keyboardist Dieter Reith, famous for having co-composed music for the 1972 Olympics, played with Stan Getz, Toots Thielemans, etc. With its rich Eastern-oriented tapestry and tricky rhythms, Roof Dancer is a show-stopper. Für Kinder is a Bela Bartok melody that morphs into funk and fusion with Deseo digging in. Check out the tenor solo! On Makin’ Whoopee the band gets down to havin’ fun with this swinging medium-tempo delight. Rock Talk is just that, as Csaba stepping on the funky (wawa) pedal. Reith On takes a delightful excursion in ¾, while Something Blue is a gritty minor blues, and Closed is an introspective ballad.
