on life, music etc beyond mainstream

„For the uninitiated, there are no words to describe the majesty and chemistry of this trio. For those who have lived for three decades with those two desert island discs, Magico and Folk Songs, this is an unexpected bonanza. It has all the qualities of those two classic discs, the extraordinary simpatico, the breathing as one, deep listening, space, the understated tenderness, all of it and something more: It has the feeling of a group that has been playing together, touring, getting to know one another and exploring the material, going in even deeper than the studio recordings. It’s a profound, dynamic and virtuosic performance with moments of great intensity, but for the most part it is contemplative and searching, redolent of the inarticulate longings of the heart.“
