Stories in Real Time

“Darryl Harper has always taken the unexpected route. But four clarinets, voice and rhythm section? That’s the sound of surprise that animates Stories In Real Time…a level of high refinement…the simple pleasure of song…stirring…alluring…. ”
— from the liner notes by David Adler
