about

“A finely textured album where the musical voices complement each other perfectly. Ambrosio and Meissner have penned the majority of the compositions that are rich on melodic hooks and narrative development. This record will put the spotlight on these two highly accomplished composers and players.” - Jakob Baekgaard, All About Jazz

“In this gorgeous, achieved music you hear the reward for the long chase, the endless chase for beauty; producing a perfection that so rarely happens, and can only be a product of so much shared knowledge.”- Peter Watrous, long-standing Jazz Critic for the NY Times

“Moments in Time is an excellent example of music that is both subtle and approachable, played by a sextet challenged by the compositions to create music that has emotional power.  This album is well worth getting lost in.” - Richard Kamins, Step Tempest

“Something about the balance of a collective and a subtle unifying energy is really making it for me. And everybody has such beautiful sounds and relaxation in the time. No showing off, just writing and playing the music as if it was the easiest most natural thing in the world.” - Michael Attias, jazz saxophonist & composer
