"Bruckmann effortlessly occupies the space between jazz and classical music, generating movements of somber reflection one minute, turbulent intensity the next. From Morton Feldman-esque minimalism to Charles Ives-like bluster, Wrack has few equals. . . " (Troy Collins, All About Jazz)
"Jazz mainstreamers will find this music delightfully approachable. Avant garde lovers will delight in the subtle way these players stray again and again from dyed-in-the-wool generic sounds." (allaboutjazz.com)
Very relaxing classical movements, varied in style from Baroque to Contemporary. Newly commisioned works by Mary Beth Bennett & Lynn Trapp. Also, comtemporary composers John Karl Hirten & Charles Callahan.
