Recorded in France, a tribute to three great jazz composers by Niemack and Waldron including three of Waldron’s originals, “Soul Eyes”, “A Time for Duke” and “The Seagulls of Kristiansund”.

"Judy Niemack digs deeply into the innards
of the compositional body eclectic andmakes no detectable missteps. She crosses her Rubicon with the grace and confidence of those who know just where the shallows are and, therefore, appear to walk on water. Her voice remains a vehicle of startling clarity with all the range and rubato she might need for either a scat or improvisatory horn mode, as well as the filligreed touch of texture with which she breathes into life an intelligent lyric."
