This is a beautiful German ECM original pressing with absolutely stunning sound. The German originals are't always the best for ECM albums (with such a huge catalog there are rarely hard, fast rules) but many times they just knock it out of the ballpark and that's certainly the case here. This pressing is killer: airy and open with superb clarity and amazing transparency. It's one of those records that gives off the feel of nothing between you and the music. It almost plays quietly, minimal surface noise in a few spots but no real issues to speak of.
5 stars Allmusic: "... spacy electric-piano fusion and Brazilian and Latin rhythms. It's all very warm, light, and airy, like a soft breeze on a tropical beach"
Cover: VG+ (very strong, light price tag shadow upper right)
Play notes: Beautiful sound, minimal surface noise
