Jazz Meditations

Solo Piano

“Simplicity and quietude are laudable goals in a jazz recording. They are often hard to pull off. Many artists wish to flex technical muscles in solo recordings and this is antithetical to simplicity and quietude. Pianist Dan Rufolo finds the sweet spot in the simple and still in his meditative suite made up of a baker’s dozen of originals and standards whose orbit is somewhere around a Zen Christian spirituality.”
