What the Critics Say...
"Overall, this is a splendid album, quiet and introversive, full of beauty and romance... Most warmly recommended!..."

an extended metaphor for time itself."

From the CD liner notes:
For me, this album is About Time...
It is about the relationship between time and memory – how the
passing of time facilitates the gathering and shaping of our memories,
and then makes them fade and sometimes disappear,
It is about the different perceptions that people have about time
– and the way these perceptions affect their lives,
It is about the time we lose… the time we gain… and the
choices we make on how to spend our time,
It is about the time it takes until one trusts oneself enough to
publicly release music, and about how improvisation - the musical
expression of the moment - is captured, to last over time.
……and, it is about the time I spent on making this album.
