Barbara Dennerlein is one of the most stimulating musicians on the Hammond B-3 (as well as a variety of other organs). On this cd, she plays solo organ, foot pedals and synthesizer. As the title suggests, the music is highly introspective, almost meditative. Yet it still manages to swing.
One of the absolutely admirable things about this recording, done at home in miss Dennerlein's own studio, is that it is entirely free of clichés. It is an intimate self portrait of a consummate artist totally in control of her instrument and not afraid to dig deep into her own soul.
Another great thing, certainly for those who are familiar with Barbara Dennerlein's work in a group context, is that you never miss other musicians. The organ, combined with the bass pedals and the sparsely used synth, produces a wonderful kind of breath that fills the entire space.
