Guillermo Klein Sextet
"So, when are we gonna hear another Bird, are we ever going to see another Miles, is anyone ever gonna rise up to the heights of Coltrane? These are questions I field with no little frequency, and my answer is always the same: They’re already here. The giants walk among us.
Guillermo Klein is counted among those giants. The pianist has been responsible for some of the most stunning, beautiful music of the modern era...Klein brings about a communion of modern post-bop and Argentinean folk, and is capable of generating epic melodic journeys and sublime harmonic reveries all within the span of one piece...” - Dave Sumner / Bird is the Worm
