—Lee Hildebrand, East Bay Express
“…a beautiful album…covers a broad range of emotions and colors across the breadth of the repertoire, owing much to Chet Baker and, not surprisingly, the cooler side of Miles Davis.”
—Aaron Cohen, DownBeat
“This gem feels timeless. It's a stunner."
—Bobby Reed, DownBeat (Editors’ Pick)
“A fabulous CD, the kind that finds its way onto the ‘Best of Year’ lists.”
