Nicki Denner's piano playing gets pretty goddamn caliente, whether she's extrapolating a Latin standard or taking listeners on jazzy jaunts into her lively originals. Frank DeBlase - Rochester International Jazz Festival ”In my humble opinion, Denner's new release belongs on every Latin music lover's shelf, whether such aficionados lean toward Latin jazz or salsa!” Vicki Sola - Latin Beat Magazine Editor's Pick: A totally cool piano trio record...The sound of the recording envelops you; the whole thing feels intimate. Denner herself is a super strong pianist, and her arrangements are full of rhythmic order; when she’s improvising she brings a ton of harmony and time to her blowing. The whole thing’s a study in time, and all its shadings. Highly Recommended. Peter Watrous - Descarga.com
