Cajan Witmer came up with the idea of recording a collection of songs, with the focus primarily on the melody and have every improvisation and embellishment being inspired by the song itself.
Witmer’s almost vocal presentation of the melody and refined melodic improvisations, Slinger’s lyrical touch and strong secure rhythmic feel combined with Kruiswijk’s inventive drum patterns, which on some songs resembles 3 subtle percussion players instead of one drumset, are fulfilling the task admirably.
Cajan Witmer and his companions, bassist Han Slinger and drummer Maarten Kruiswijk, has worked together for 21 years, and the empathy they feel for each other is evident throughout this recording.
