“Ivan has the ability to compose in such an unexpected way that he is always recognizable in his work in a way nobody else does. His pieces, never superficial and never dull, are surprisingly lucid. Every new composition again is an unbelievable experience, and many great and well-known jazz musicians are always willing to play with Ivan and of course especially his beautiful compositions. My very convinced believe is that sometime in the future Ivan will unmistakably reach the status of a world famous composer.” (Bob Hagen, liner notes)

“For some fifteen years I have been practicing that amazing and unusual profession that one calls musician; from the beginning I was attracted by composition and by the pleasure that performing my own works in public brings. Originally inspired by classical music, I understood that jazz was the ideal way to bring out the best in my pieces: the wide range of forms, rhythms and harmonies and the infinite perspective that improvisation offers, made me feel that anything was possible, including playing ‘mistakes’. I am fond of the trio format, but also find lots of pleasure in composing pieces specifically for my soloists of choice: Tom Harrell, Bob Malach, Toots Thielemans, Richard Galliano, Charlie Mariano, Rick Margitza, Toon Roos, Fay Claassen... Upon meeting Bob Hagen in 2001, I was struck by his great enthusiasm and by his inexhaustible desire to support the young musicians he appreciates. I am happy to be part of that group; but above all, I’m grateful for his belief in my work as a composer and his
infallible moral support. Through this compilation, I’d like to invite the listener to my dreams and, who knows, to the discovery of my other recordings.” (Ivan Paduart, liner notes)
