Of course we know anything Benoit is going to be wonderful.
Joy Creater
Spans mellow to slightly jumpy and funky, great instrumentation, and just plain great music.
Barb
Still, this album quickly became a favorite for me and my wife.

Leaving behind the downtempo electronic approach of 2010's Earthglow, pianist David Benoit returns to a more traditional contemporary jazz vibe on 2012's "Conversation".
Once again working with producer Clark Germain, Benoit has put together a more organic, swinging sound this time around.
To these ends, we get the R&B-infused Latin number "Feelin' It" as well as Benoit's take on the Vince Guaraldi-sounding theme to the film "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" featuring guitarist Jeff Golub. Similarly engaging are such cuts as the roiling spy-movie funk of "Q's Motif" and the jazz-funk of "Let's Get Ready" with saxophonist David Sills. One of the main draws here, of course, is the title track composition that Benoit culled from the last movement of his suite "Music for Two Trios".
The track showcases a classical trio featuring pianist Robert Theis and a jazz organ trio led by Benoit trading sections and going head to head on this cinematic and rambling "conversation" piece. M. Collar

5 stars just aren't enough! it's THAT good! i agree with the other post that said there isn't enough music on this cd....so true! but then again, i don't think i could EVER get enough of this man! good jazz piano is very hard to come by these days and david proves that he is still top notch in this category. my all time favorite benoit song is searching for june (off of his best of compilation) as well as the breathtakingly beautiful kei's song. on this cd, the redux version of kei's song is very pleasant to the ears. although i do prefer the original, this one is pretty fantastic. also, the title track, conversation, is another highlight on this cd. absolutely wonderful concept of the musicians having a "conversation" with each other. his daughter (who plays violin on these tracks) seems to be just as talented as her dad.

all in all, if you are a true benoit fan, than DON'T WALK....RUN for this latest masterpiece by one of the great pianists of our time!

Always a pleasure to listen to a composer who takes his talent seriously. Flowing and melodic this is truly a compilation that represents the smooth and contemporary jazz style.

I've been a fan of Mr. Benoit's going back to his first recording (and I think I have them all) and I love this new CD. I also appreciated that one of my favorite of his compositions "Kei's Song" was re-visited as "Kei's Song Redux." In my opinion you can't go wrong with any one of David Benoit's recordings ... go through the listing, pick a CD ... you'll be happy!!!

This is just another of David Benoit's delightful musical offerings! Spans mellow to slightly jumpy and funky, great instrumentation, and just plain great music.

Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" became a jazz standard an entire generation loved and embraced. David Benoit's work at the very least parallels Brubeck's if not surpasses. His "Sunrise Over Mansion Row" will mellow out the most frenetic listener. It is absolutely sublime. His "You Are Amazing" makes you want to move! These two works alone make "Conversations" worth the price, but all the tracks on this amazing CD are winners! This is a must have for C-Jazz afficianados. I wonder if it's purely coincidental that these two giants (Brubeck and Benoit) share the same initials?

Oh David! As huge of a jazz fan that I am , I must say that this album is right up there with the sleepy, predictable and boring main stream jazz that has become so popular. Mr David Benoit has a unique sound and there are a few cuts on this album that I do enjoy, however, the rest I could honestly fall asleep to. Nothing fresh here and what's up with the 37 minutes of run time?
Disappointing.
