    ECM may have its detractors, but they've given us an unexpected gem here and maybe one of the jazz records of the year so far.

    With All Our Reasons, there's clear potential for another sustained relationship, and a tantalizingly high bar to clear.

    It's an A-list lineup, but focused on making unique music rather than parading technicalities.

    All Our Reasons is wonderfully executed, and full of excellent tunes, nice improvisational turns, numerous surprises (many of them subtle), and a warm, lively sense of engagement throughout.

    Thoroughly satisfying in sum, Hart and crew still succeed in leaving the listener desirous of more.
