Pianist Renee Rosnes ends a two-year recording lull with Life on Earth, a set of mostly original tunes with a world music flavor. There's quite a bit – maybe too much – going on here, as Rosnes introduces new sonic elements and personnel to differentiate each track. Thus, "Empress Afternoon" boasts the formidable tabla of Zakir Hussain; "Senegal Son" the percussion and vocals of Mor Thiam; "The Quiet Earth" a string section; "Hanuman" a sampled Balinese monkey chant and three trombones; and so on. The result is at times novel and beautiful.

The names Renee Rosnes and David Hajdu are already well known to music lovers: Rosnes as one of her generation’s most acclaimed jazz composers and pianists, Hajdu as an award-winning author and critic.
