Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ronald Romm noted that "great music, like all great art, is a synergist of wellness for the soul." In this highly personal album he offers a selection of the best loved works arranged for his warm trumpet sound and incredible facility. He is accompanied by his wife Avis on piano. Together, they offer music that purifies and nourishes, stretching the sonic envelope of trumpet and piano to create something new and fresh.
