The Dover Quartet made news when it won all three special prizes as well as the top prize at the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition. Soon after, the quartet was being reviewed and interviewed by mainstream media such as the Wall Street Journal and NPR in addition to music-centric publications like Musical America and The Strad magazines. It is very consistently complimented for its homogeneous sound and insightful interpretations. Its members - Joel Link and Bryan Lee, violins; Melina Pajaro-van de Stadt, viola; Camden Shaw, cello - approach music with an eye for details, whether it's how the instruments' sounds blend or how to shape a particular phrase. The quartet was formed in 2008 at the Curtis Institute where its members were students. It has been mentored by several leading quartet musicians, including Shmuel Ashkenasi, Peter Wiley, Arnold Steinhardt, and Michael Tree. It has performed in recital and at festivals across North America and in Europe, and is active in community outreach projects.

Since this is pianist Matthew Shipp's first session with David S. Ware (and only his second recording date ever), it's safe to say Great Bliss, Volume 1 is the launching pad for the quartet that helped make the tenor saxophonist's name and reputation. Conceived from the start as a two-CD project, it finds the leader intent on establishing his multi-instrumentalist credentials with three tracks featuring him on saxello, two on flute, one on stritch, and just two on his main axe.

Saxophonist Yuri Honing comes after the successful album Desire, again with a jazz album that breathes peace, serenity, tension and mysticism. The inspiration comes from Honing's love for classical music, history and art. The central theme and motive for this album is Europe and heroism. In those times when people do not always realize the value of Europe and of 70 years of peace, Honing tells a binding story. During his research into the history of Europe, he chose Germany as a symbol of Europe. Because of their many good writers, philosophers, composers and painters. And because of its resilience and the leadership role they now take in Europe. He attributes to more proudness of among Europeans of the cultural DNA of our their continent.
