From here to the moon by Mad & Eddie Duran

This enjoyable cd was a complete surprise with its smooth joy and happy motifs, at times a hint of 1950s jazz filtering through its sweet Brazilian tempos. Eddie Duran plays guitar, and Mad Duran plays saxophones and flute with the following musicians on different tracks: Al Plank on piano, Scott Steed on bass, Vince Lateano on drums, Mark Levine on piano, Mark Van Wageningen on bass, Paul Ramirez on percussion. Each one of the selections is a gem. Well-polished, alive, and vibrant! The 12 selections include: "Daahoud," "Symphony Sid Samba," an excellent medley featuring "My Favorite Things" and "Take Five," George Shearing's "Conception," Miles Davis' "Deception," "From Here to the Moon" which is an original composition by Eddie Duran, "Don't Be That Way," "Besame Mucho," "Budo," the remarkable "Quesadillas," "Very Early," "CTA." Some mighty fine musicians at performance on this CD, sharing their music freely and without limitations! Mad and Eddie Duran at their finest!
