Following the same format as the critically aclaimed debut, the album featueres some Cole Porter as well as some more contemporay themes by Tom Harrel, Danny Zeitlin as well as originals by Karen and Nikki. The album also features a great version of Monk's Pannonica as well as the little heard, deceptively simple tune by bassist Ron Carter, Little Waltz.
Far from being a horn with accompanying trio, Karen's Quartet features each voice to its fullest without ever undermining the integrity of the group, with fine contributions by all.
