Description

As recorded by Mats Holmquist Big Bad Band (Caprice Records 2003).
Beautiful ballad with very unusual and interesting chord changes. From Chicks' slightly lesser-known album Touchstone. Holmquist's arrangement features first of all guitar but also trumpet 5. There are unusual colours in woodwinds and muted brass. The piece has a mysterious and ethereal feeling and it gives your harmonically skilled guitarist an unusual opportunity to shine. Beautiful ballad.

"However it is Holmquist's inventive arrangements, which are a logical extension of Corea's original performances, that are the real stars. Recommended.”

****1/2 Scott Yanow, Allmusic.com
