“...a stunning project...held together by the highly original mind of Ms. Swiggett.”
- JazzTimes
For her second OA2 release, Seattle pianist, composer and vocalist Nelda Swiggett invited veteran Seattle Symphony violist Rachel Swerdlow and cellist Walter Gray to augment her long time trio, with bassist Chris Symer and drummer Byron Vannoy, for a collection of original compositions. Creatively unfolding melodies with supple harmonies create unique soundscapes and the illusion of a larger ensemble. "...generally starting out calmly and melodically, but unveiling deeper layers of excitement and intrigue as the songs develop. There's a lot to listen to here, and almost all of it is excellent." - All Music Guide.
