There is so much to enjoy on "The Waters Above", just don't expect an elongated "blowing" session. The music, the quartet, the composer want you to enter a different soundscape if you are willing to explore. If you are, Phil Schurger and his music will reward you generously.

Here's a track to whet your appetite:
I do enjoy the sounds of guitar-bass-drums trio: whether it be the overwhelming attack of Cream or the subtle approach of Jim Hall, the combination is one with so many possibilities. Evan Salvacion Levine makes music that makes us listen with expanded ears, with open minds, and one imagines it's great to hear the trio live in a club setting. The word "Mestizo" refers to a mixture: the album "Mestizo" does just that, mixes influences and goes in many delightful directions.
