""This is an Apple" opens with a bright, sunny, yet gospelish melody. I dig the way the bass and piano solos are an extension of that righteous melody. Eri seems to have a knack for writing winning songs that are a delight to hear again and again. I find myself humming along each time I play this disc. Wouldn't it be nice to hear this disc on that 24 hour (jive) jazz station on the left end of your dial instead of the all those lame singers that they force on us? You bet it would, but I wouldn't hold my breath. ..((.." –BLG
