Here’s a 2010 release from Connie (piano) & her long-time collaborators (Richard Tabnik, alto saxophone; Roger Mancuso, drums & Ken Filiano, bass)… you can listen to the title track, “Deep Friendship“, by clicking on the link (unfortunately, I couldn’t find any other samples on AMAZON or CD BABY, though there may be more on YOUTUBE).  The recording is very well-done, especially considering that it’s a live show.  Of the five rather long tunes offered up, it was actually the title track that my ears gave the most attention to, & is therefore my favorite.  Another example of Connie’s excellent musicianship, and a great CD to have in your collection.  I give this one a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98.
