Things that need to be said
"Jazz doesn't have many great albums featuring two pianists…so 'Bienestan' is exceptional in more than one sense. The music is complex but never cold, and when the keyboardists do square off alone they sound entwined, like extensions of each other." -- The New York Times
"On this lush and superlatively swinging set, Jackson, Goldberg and Avital explore the value of time and space, and what happens when those musical principles are measured with grace and a little grit. The YES! Trio seemingly knock back a few cool ones, take their own sweet time and put some serious soul to CD." -- DOWNBEAT
"'Home' is full of swirling currents and dizzying flourishes, but its basic temperament is reflective, inward-seeking. It’s a statement of confident serenity." -- The New York Times
"On 'Worlds' Goldberg works hand-in-glove with Rogers and Harland, his bass–drum team of choice for the last decade, displaying quick-witted harmonic reflexes, fluid command of line and a cut-to-the-chase sense of narrative logic." -- DOWNBEAT
