“I have been playing with Michael, Bernhard and Rudi for a few years now - we've made a couple of CDs together but this one is a little different. Michael has selected a really nice program and I think it works very well as an album. I have always wanted to take a crack at "The Summer Knows" and there is a nice waltz by Joe Zawinul that I liked very much. Michael is very strong and dynamic throughout, especially on our duet on "Rifftide". Very nice getting to play with the vibes again - Tizian does a terrific job, as do all the guys. - You should buy it right now.”
