3 stars Another piano-based album by AP after several years. There are no other instruments for distraction,just one player and one instrument.

3 stars This album is certainly better than Ivory Moon, but it's not one of Mr. AP's best productions. The songs sound a bit too similar to me. Ant has produced some of the finest piano playing captured on oxide. Unfortunately, none of it is condensed on a single CD, it's scattered throughout his lon ... (read more)
