Performance:   Sonics:  
Having listened to this CD twice, I'm afraid to say that the second impression matched the first, or should I say lack of. The playing is competent, but there is little artistic insight, and it comes across as one of those straight down the road performances, the usual case these days, with artists sacrificing risk taking for note-perfection.

The sound is sadly also mediocre close, hard, and certainly not warranting anything more than 16/44.1 and this SACD will be making its way to join the others at bargain price on the amazon marketplace.
