No voice on this album, just his great piano playing, and some additional whisteling. The album is hauntingly beautifull, but terribly short - it only lasts about 20 minutes. It's a kind of Brad Mehldau meets minimalism album; it might sound very simplistic, it still is beautifull enough to blow you away. If it would be a bit longer, it would be a five star album for sure.
Wim Mertens has been a fount of creativity for many decades. Sometimes that creativity produces ethereal results, sometimes they are bland, and unfortunately, sometimes the results are unlistenable. Of the many Mertens CDs I have, this is my second favorite (after Jardin Clos). His bubbly, cyclical, effervescent style works beautifully on almost every selection here. This lively and living music twists, turns, churns, and percolates into an intoxicating (how many mixed metaphors in THAT description?) blend that always puts a smile on my face.
