Ejazznews reviews "Of Soul and Shadow"

I've been lucky enough to review several of latino piano specialist Luis Munoz's CD projects over the years. This current project shows Luis's bent on creating latin jazz that is both absorbing & engaging for his listenership. Luis's music is always alive & fresh & this spate of originals is a prime example of both his delicate quality with stylistic precision. Munoz's music offers us a thoughtful combination of interesting musical ideas & a satisfying aesthetic as well. Luis's compositional talents are extraordinarily wide with a sensitivity & phraseology that can quiet one's sensibilites. Kudos then to this wonderful latino pianist-composer of song as he delivers his songs to discriminating & accepting ears..........OURS, in an apparent, effortless fashion.
