"Bill Evans (the saxophonist) fuses jazz and hip-hop on this disc in a way that doesn't short-change the jazz half of the equation. Ahmed Best chants intelligent lyrics, albeit with a rapper's stiff cadence, that add depth without compromising the underlying jazz aesthetic. He's featured on two songs, "Reality" and "La Di Da". The album opener, "Swing Hop", also successfully blends the excitement of instrumental jazz and hip-hop vocals in a compelling manner. The remainder of the material ranges from jazz-funk to Brazilian influences. Evan's rich, warm tone weaves a seductive spell throughout, supported by Jim Beard's keyboards, Lee Ritenour's guitar, Steve Ferrone's drumming, and the basses of Marcus Miller, Victor Bailey, and Mark Egan, among others. With this, his best studio recording yet, Bill's well on the way to becoming as significant an artist as his piano-playing namesake."
Man, this one is Smooooooth.

"In about every case, I call it like I see it or hear it. This album is just about one of the best smooth jazz albums that passed my ears in a while. It is nothing less then refreshing. All I could say is pick it up and just sit back with a glass of wine with or without you wife and enjoy. It's like a good dinner, it just stays with you. Another one for the JAZZ COLLECTION. A MUST."
