Top-notch jazz music
Paul J. Escamilla | NYC | 08/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album cooks. It percolates. It dances. It lifts my soul and puts a smile in my heart.If you like Coltrane's classic quartet era, you will LOVE this album. It has a very similar feel, although not quite as intense. It's more light-hearted, but the solos are not frivolous. They are passionate, creative, and witty. The interplay between the players is a thing of beauty. These are master musicians having a great conversation with one another. And Elvin is keeping it all flowing and be-bopping along.Classic jazz that should be in your collection. Amen.P.S. The track "A Lullaby of Itsugo Village" is hands down one of the most beautiful jazz ballads I have ever had the privilege to hear. Just gorgeous."
