My guess is I was one of the few who noticed and bought a copy of Epiphany back in 1999. Why in my case? I kept noticing who wrote some of the better tunes on several of the jazz CDs I was buying. Epiphany is still one of my best treasures.

And now the same for Nights On Earth. "A List" musicians doing their best performing Mendoza's compositions. There is no detail that is less than perfect and everyone involved here delivered his full potential. This is where jazz, world and classical orchestra cross swords and the resulting body of work is more than the sum of its parts.

Does anyone remember the parable about a group of blind men who get to walk up to, feel and describe the respective part of the elephant they each get to experience? You can find the two tracks available via NPR. You get to experience two very different parts of the elephant. You'll like those parts but you'll be a long way from being able to describe the whole elephant.

There is a lot of good stuff out there but this is exceptionally better. Sorry for the rave here but it's worth any personal embarrassment on my part. This is 5 stars in a world where 3 is really good.

Mendoza brings a wealth of experience from his background in music arrangements. His own work shines here, and the guest artists are a treat.

Nice mix of straightforward jazz, smooth jazz, world, and even classical. It is all very beautifully melodic as little elements are played and reworked throughout. He ties it all together nicely; so listening from beginning to end is a wonderful trip through the genius of this arranger/artist and the amazing collaborators.

It is both contemporary and timeless. Definitely going on my favorites playlist.

Thanks, Vince. I loved your Epiphany and Start Here. Nights on Earth another great CD!
These are my favorite Mendoza works so far. Vince you're a musical genius. Your music is beautiful. I recommend to others to listen, enjoy, absorb, buy.

Can't remember the last time I listened through to a CD and HAD to immediately listen through again. This man keeps topping himself. Great compositions and arrangements. Top musicians playing passionately. Melodic Jazz World Fusion at it's finest. A terrific range of musical sensibilities on display here.
I've followed Vince since Epiphany and his Joni recordings through 2008's wonderful Blauklang, and this one tops them all - a major feat. What a pleasure to hear unadulterated music for music sake.
I continue to extol the work of this brilliant musician.

There is just NO WAY that Mendoza gets a bad review. I am always FLOORED by how and the way the PURE SOUND of EXELLENCE in every piece this man creates!! If anyone enjoys JAZZ you are in for a SURPRISE. And boy what surprises!!

All the instuments and voices and WHAT NOTS that Mendoza throws in to his compositions breath a life of its own.
I have nearly all his Music CD's and HANDS DOWN on a MASTER. He is like a MANET,MONET with a PICASSO and DALI in an ART SHOW.

All I can say This CD NIGHTS on EARTH is so COOL that VINCE MENDOZA IS NOW QUITE THE GENIUS, But then again he is one with all his WORKS !!

I heard this CD on NPR first, then bought one for myself. After my 1st listening, I got 2 more for family members. This is some great stuff. Every tune is loaded with expression and emotion. This is reminiscent of Chick Corea in Return to Forever, with some great sax work, and the cello is the best I've heard.
