Rob Ryndak, on piano and percussion, and Tom Lockwood on saxophones and array of woodwinds anchor a very cool musical excursion with Gratitude. They are joined by trumpet and flugelhorn player Brian Lynch, who also excels on the production. Other players on the effort include guitarist Sasha Brown, bassist Karl Seigfried, drummer Jeff Moehle, percussionist Victor Gonzalez, Jr., vibraphonist Micah Rutschman, pianist Steve Talaga and cellist Ryan Koranda. It’s a nice really nice musical brew with excellent original compositions from Ryndak and Lockwood joined with fantastic musicianship. A really wonderful recording.
