Album Notes
From a stimulating Porgy and Bess medley to interpretations of themes by Bizet and Gliere. Pianist Mike Renzi and drummer Grady Tate round out the trio. Guitarist and vocalist Ramiro Sosa, percussionist George Mazzeo, and tenor saxophonist Billy Ross make guest appearances. Wilner's arco perfection and Renzi's impeccable accompaniment on Glier's prelude from Vier Stucke constitute one highlight, his witty plucked solo on Parker's "Dexterity" another.

Wilner is an astonishing bass player whether bowing, walking, interacting . . . or covering the instrument from top to bottom in his pizzicato solos. His purity of tone and breadth of technique may come from his classical background. They are matched by a time feeling achieved only by musicians with a bone-deep jazz sensibility."
