Leo Tardin, winner of the International Piano Solo Competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival has crafted a vibrant drum-n-piano record with just enough electronic shadings to satisfy those with a sweet tooth for chillout music. Tardin's musical restlessness is the record's chief strength; he blends swift, sparkling piano runs with rat-a-tat rhythms to make crisp, effervescent songs, perfect for lazy, low-lit evenings at home.
