A nicely varied set of thoughtful originals from the talented Horvitz. One can hear a bit of Bill Evans and even a bit of Cecil Taylor in his influences but he strikes me as primarily coming from a Keith Jarrett perspective. While the compositions are not wildly original they are modern and probing, for the most part, and the tight quartet plays with sensitivity and creativity. The sound is quite good if a bit too heavy on the extreme low-end. The kick drum and bass E string can be a bit boomy at times. In fact, I turned down the sub while listening (and I'm a bass aficionado). But the clarity and detail of the piano and guitar are quite good and the spaciousness of the surround mix perfectly suits the music. I rate it an overall 8.
