Ballad playing may be the most difficult jazz style to master and the one that requires the most maturity and life experience. Even the most talented younger players are often stymied when confronted with the challenges of preserving a melody while stamping it with their own imprimatur. Warren Vach is one of jazzÕs finest balladeers...... Although he has always been one of the most consistently inspired jazz performers, in recent years his playing seems to reflect an even deeper emotional commitment which, combined with his omnipresent technique, has led him to new artistic heights as is evident on this superb set.
