If Life’s Little Mysteries was an LP it would be crackly sounding by now from the number of times I’ve played it. Dave’s guitar work and violin work are lovely but the compositions are remarkable. Dave works through many different styles and yet the musical personality remains intact throughout. BRAVO!

I love Life’s Little Mysteries for its great tunes and such warm renditions. I love Dave’s musical universe. It’s so fresh and creative and so Dave.
— Chick Corea
I don’t often review jazz albums, not because I don’t like jazz, but because I find so few jazz albums that can successfully navigate the slender space ‘between been done before cocktail jazz’ and ‘too-far-out-for-comfort wall of noise’. Yet Life’s Little Mysteries accomplished this musical tightrope trick with style and verve. Dave Kline, the session leader, plays steel and nylon stringed acoustic guitars as well as acoustic and electric violins. He accomplishes this quadruple threat with great style and impeccable tone.

All musical compositions on the disc were written by Dave Kline. They run the gamut form Latin inflected sambas such as “Tropical Bo[p]” to modal melodies like “Life’s Little Mysteries” with a side trip down to the delta on “Fiddlin’ the Blues.” What I like most about Kline’s music is that it has drive without being hard-edged, and is musically inventive without losing track of the song’s core melody and structure.

Engineered by Bob Dawson, Kline’s co-producer, and mastered at Airshow Mastering in Boulder, CO, the sound on this CD is first-class. Even with the mixture of acoustic and electric instruments the overall sound remains natural, open, and very real.
