About the album
Master New York guitarist offers a fresh approach to the modern jazz mainstream with a sparkling set of original compositions for his new guitar/vibes quartet. Shepik’s guitar playing and compositions are immediately engaging for their fresh melodic and harmonic invention, and the group interplay is dynamic and subtle. These performances are as immaculate yet emotionally resonant as ever, with energy and finesse to spare. Audiophile recording. Shepik continues to actively tour as a leader in North America and Europe and his sidemen are well known in their own right, touring with Kenny Werner, Avishai Cohen etc.
