descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Is three the magic number? For many jazz musicians it's an important one. Every record is of course significant, but the third is often more closely scrutinised. In this sense, it's both a great opportunity and a niggling pressure: the chance to really begin cementing a good name, with a little weight of added expectation. Manuel Mengis, however, did not feel any of this. He even identifies a more relaxed approach than his two previous releases, partially due to shifting priorities in life. An atmosphere of light, easy contentment shines through the music- Mengis and the Gruppe 6 are really enjoying themselves, free of any kind of external strain. And the pleasure is contagious."-Frederick Bernas, from the liner notes
