Critic and historian Arnaldo de Souteiro: “Marc Copland is one of the best pianists in jazz history, the same creative level of Keith Jarrett, and the greatest jazz piano poet since Bill Evans.” Bassist Drew Gress is one of the busiest bassists on the NY and world scene; his complete technical mastery of the intrument never gets in the way of a visceral feel for jazz.
