sample the album:
"Two years after their debut recording the Yoni Kretzmer 2Bass Quartet return with Book II, a double CD set. The new album features 9 tracks with just the minimum amount of per-conceived material so not to distinguish the spontaneity, but rather to act as empty, almost transparent, scaffolding. The quartet's sound has grown and deepened as has the interplay between the musicians, thus, enabling the band to take greater risks and larger leaps of faith. Earthiness has become this groups trademark, the trick is to manage to dive into the pits of the earth while maintaining a certain clarity and vividness, as though seeing while having mud in the eyes."-OutNow
