CELEBRATING ART OF THE HEART' CD RELEASE
Recorded on February 14, 2004 at Platinum Seven Studios in Pennsylvania, Art of the Heart features music popularized by Johnny Mathis, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole performed and arranged by the legendary bassist Eddie Gomez and the brilliant pianist Mark Kramer. Best known for his work with pianist Bill Evans, Eddie Gomez's performance throughout this recording is reminiscent of his work with Evans but incorporates an even greater depth of feeling due to the empathetic playing of Mark Kramer. The musical and emotional depth created by Gomez and Kramer throughout this recording is perhaps the deepest of all their combined works over the past decade. Although there are only two of them, the music feels and sounds orchestral at times--despite their generous use of space throughout. The music Gomez and Kramer have created on this album is a study in musical communication, interaction, minimalism and orchestration" which is destined to become a true classic.
All in all, Art of the Heart is a superbly made recording which reveals how much jazz can be the story of our lives and the meanings we find during the quiet hours of 'recollection in tranquility.'"--Victor L. Schermer, All About Jazz
This is 'music for lovers' without having to splice together a careers worth of recordings from various labels. Here, it is delivered as it was meant. Anyone missing Evans' classic duo work with Gomez have a long awaited companion"--George Harris, All About Jazz
