album info

“If this fine release doesn’t push composer and pianist David Berkman into the mainstream jazz foreground, nothing will. Berkman is a dynamic writer (whose) striking solos are often overlooked as the compositions have such seamless organic unity.”Marcus Crowder, Sacramento Bee

“With Leaving Home, (Berkman) has ascended to a new height of creativity. Tracing the trajectory of mapped out by his earlier CD’s we can see a greater level of melodic sophistication and more intense coalescing of compositional elements.”John Stevenson, CD Reviews.com
