  "That's it" announced Album of the week

by the Latin Jazz Network, Toronto, Canada

“..Maria Fernandez Alvarez has a sensuous voice that she uses to curl around the notes sending them in to rhapsodic ecstasy..”


 “..These two musicians (Arndt Beckman & Maria Fernandez Alvarez)  put an infectious charm on the rest of the ensemble making it impossible for the rest of the musicians to resist the beguiling and delightful music. Such a maddeningly beautiful reaction from the musicians of a group may not be so rare, but the effect that Mr. Beckmann and Ms. Alvarez have on bass, drums, and brass and woodwinds is extraordinary. This has a dramatic chain reaction producing music that is gorgeous and unforgettable..”
