Adam Baruch's liner Notes:
"It's always a delightful surprise to see very young musicians, who love to play jazz music, especially when they do it as well as the members of Modus. When their home-recorded cassette arrived on my desk, my decision to make a record with them was instantaneous.
The core of the group - Sasi and Dov - both live in the south of Israel, in the Negev desert. Sasi comes from a small settlement and Dov is a kibbutz member. Their music was born and matured far from the big city turmoil, and this is perhaps the reason why it's so serene and non-aggressive.
I'm especially impressed by the quality of the original compositions presented on this record. I love beautiful and intricate melodies, and this record is full of them. Regardless of the label one wishes to put on this music, be it "jazz-rock", "fusion" or "contemporary jazz", one thing is sure - this is jazz at its best - creative, swinging and stimulating. I'm sure that the listener will find new qualities and thrills every time he hears this music.
