"A Wonderful Thing is full of subtle surprises, excellent writing and colorful solos ... Ryndak's most rewarding recording to date."
--Scott Yanow, author of Bebop, The Jazz Singers, Jazz On Film, and Jazz On Record 1917-76
Chicago-based pianist/composer Rob Ryndak's
A Wonderful Thing may be of interest to both our Chicago readers and Latin Jazz listeners due to the presence of percussionists Victor Gonzalez Jr. and
Rubén Alvarez (both of whom were part of Chuchito Valdes' Live in Chicago recording, which was
nominated for a Latin GRAMMY® this year) and trumpeter Tito Carrillo, a prominent member of
Chicago's Latin Jazz scene.
