What more need to be said about Yelena Eckemoff? Besides the fact that she is an exceptional pianist/composer who has released numerous recordings that attests to it. In keeping step with her progression, her latest collection, Flying Steps, is merely a catapult boasting all and more that Eckemoff is capable of. With Flying Steps, Eckemoff dived within herself to compose such personal tracks such as “For Harry” and “Tomorrow” – which were birthed from her personal relationships.  With offering such as these, Eckemoff has produced a defining recording that shouts she has the stuff what jazz enthusiasts crave.
