Shadow Of A Soul is about my reverence of the soul, by which I mean a person’s individuality, imagination, and passion that we have when we’re born… and then what we do with it.” – David Bloom / Read more in the review in Jazz in Europe, click here.

“Latin rhythms play a big part on some of the best tracks. “For Eddie P” features Afro-Cuban rhythms in a tribute to Eddie Palmieri, and pianist Ryan Cohan does a great job of channeling Eddie’s fierce and dissonant piano barrages.” / Read more in the review in Jazz Music Archives, click here.

“I have particularly enjoyed writing this music, giving Cliff a few ideas about instrumentation, and then coming to  the studio and hearing his glorious rendering of my compositions.  It’s always an exhilarating surprise to hear how a lead sheet can turn into a magical experience. Now that’s true alchemy.”
