“…any commentary about Mulgrew’s quiet command of his instrument or the understated quality of his playing would not do him justice. For that, we simply have to turn to the music – only through hearing his compositions do we truly get close to Mulgrew Miller the man.

It’s an absolutely beautiful homage.”
