Comments:Philip Ditmer said:

The album was nominated for a Grammy. As a trumpet player, I bought this CD more for the playing of Rolf Smedvig than for the musical content of the CD. However, the presence, especially of the strings, and the balance among all instruments on this digital recording are high quality. For trumpet afficienado's, Smedvig's playing is top notch.
