Review: ethnic fusion jazz, for lack of a better term. The Cimbalom is like a large hammer dulcimer. Preda is masterful on a variety of other instruments as well. No set group, he utilizes a stellar line-up of pros from different genres, including Arturo Sandoval on trumpet and Mike Stern on guitar. Several originals along with rearranged gems from the past.
If You Like: Bobby Hutcherson, Toumani Diabate, Weather Report
