"This is amazing! The recording quality is phenomenal, the engineers really did this one right. Not only are the players all superstars (John Hicks is one of my favorite on pianos), but you can hear everything: the squeaking of a finger across a bass string, The sound of air rushing past Murray's reed, the keys hitting the piano. Really, if you like music, buy this just for the quality of the recording!
Also, where else can you get an album with this much bass clarinet!"

"This one was recorded at the same sessions as the fine "Fast Life". This one focuses, somewhat obviously, on Ballads. Murray has a few other Ballad-focused CDs, and like the others, shows he can create beautiful slow recordings without some of the extremes as his other works. I'd pick up "Ballads" before this one however."
