    MUSIK- EXPRESS

    DIE WOCHE

    JAZZTHING

  • "Perfect Vibes. Friedman utilises all capabilities of his instrument, fathoming the most delicate structures of sound. Absolutely recommended hearing!"
    JAZZTHETIK

  • "The perfect musical dreamwalk."
    PLÄRRER

  • "This daring recording of solo vibraphone/marimba by David Friedman is riviting. The sonorities that Friedman is able to construct are quite beautiful. The music is made of the same fabric that dreams are made of. From thick and rich colors and textures to tightly woven melodies and bursts of rhythms, this recording is one of the best examples of solo jazz vibraphone work I have ever heard. Bebop to ballads, David Friedman has made an important mark with this thoroughly enjoyable jazz recording."
    JAZZ FRIENDS REVIEW

  • "Air Sculpture is a very cool set of acoustic ambience from David Friedman. He created these somewhat exotic atmospheres on the vibraphone and marimba. These short pieces (all between three and eight minutes) are the kind that bring smiles and chuckles to even the most disinterested listener. The style bears a strong resemblance to '50s exotica, but Friedman brings his own panache and grace to the table. This is a fairly unique set."
