EDITORS’ NOTES

The muffled, muted, and jangling tone of Carlos Cipa’s piano—complete with the mesmeric rattle of its mechanism—provides the evocative, rose-tinted canvas for this collection of reflective pieces. The gentle rocking of the opening track, “The Place Where They Go,” sets the album’s restful, intimate tone, with Cipa’s most famous piece, “And Gently Drops the Rain,” providing its warm heart. The coda to Sculptures, “Nowhere to Be Found” is a simple yet stunningly private utterance by a master of understatement.
