This album has amazing sound quality and the recording is stunning. All the CD's from the same label seem to have excellent quality. For lovers of the mallet and percussion instruments, this CD is a must! The track "Jazz Variants" is quite possibly one of the best demo cuts for high-end audiophile systems that I have ever heard! Most of the music is just so-so, but a couple of the tracks are quite good. This is a "must-have" for audiophiles looking for amazing well-recorded music to challenge their systems with.
