A journey inspired by all the music that, in one way or another, makes us move. From the echoes of flamenco in Madrid and Cuban songs in New York, through the Caribbean and down the Andes, soaking up folklore all around us, we follow the rhythm to the southernmost tip of the Americas, and back home.
With our backpacks full of music and stories to tell in our own way.
This is our never ending journey.
Repeated spins of the album unveil its layers of excellence, from Roe's rambunctious piano on Sunny to Whitaker's pulsating bass lines on On Green Dolphin Street to Dobbins' crashing drums on Donna Lee. Throughout it all Choi's violin remains a constant and dominant presence like the transcendent shimmer of stars in the blackest of skies.

As George Fendel of JazzScene Magazine put it: “Look out! The next jazz violin virtuoso may be discovered in these grooves!”
