“...Musings is an impressively accomplished debut."


Jazzdagama - Raul da gama

"Musings will likely go down as one of the most celebrated large ensemble recordings made this year... Christopher Zuar, who is responsible for this devilishly good recording is prodigiously gifted, an idiomatic and virtuoso writer who seems to dream in every instrument represented here.
