Much More Than a Novelty Item
Jan P. Dennis | Monument, CO USA | 09/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD would be worth it for the transcendent Banks of the River, if nothing else; but everything is top drawer here. This is certainly one of the most soulful jazz CD's ever recorded. The rhythm section, anchored by the incomparable Sly Dunbar, cooks with a slooow burn that mesmerizes. Fraser, mostly on tenor but sometimes doubling on alto, plays his heart out. Consummate professionalism, great sound, marvelous ensemble playing, tasty solos--what more could you want from a jazz CD? This one seldom leaves my most-listened-to pile."
