"Have you ever heard a CD which like a scrumptious cake, gets better with each bite? If not, then you want this album.
It intrigues with each new note. It can be said that Guthman eats bread baked from many ovens and this experience certainly impacts the quality of playing music so enthralling that it will satisfy scholars and at the same time so expressive that it can be recommended to jazz neophytes."
