CD Reviews

A masterpiece of cool jazz, funk and classical music
R.E. van de Goorberg | Amsterdam - The Netherlands | 03/17/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just love this album. I have owned the original album since 1979 and when my eyes fell on the CD in one of our local shops about seven years ago now, I didn't have to think twice and bought it straight away. I still love to listen to it once every so often. The recording quality is just superb, especially on the acoustic recordings! A jazzfunk masterpiece, with a great rythm section (Andy Newmark and Ralph MacDonald), funky bass (Gary King), Bob James on keyboards and the cool and sophisticated flute of the man himself. Huberts interpretations of Ravel's 'Forlane' and Tchaikovsky's 'Romeo and Juliet' are just awsome. Played with tremendous virtuosity, perfect timing and outstanding deliverance! If you are in to jazz and funk but you love your classical music too, you are going to be hooked, I know I am!"
Hubert broke the walls!

"This performance of Romeo & Juliet in the free adapatation of Hubert Laws is amazing . If you are a jazz music hard fan and even if you haven't heard before this famous work of Tchaikovsky , don 't doubt for a second .
Colossal is the best adjective I can find to describe it ."

"Originally had this recording on 8 track (approx. 1975-76) always considered a classic to me.From "Undecided" to "Tryin' To Get That Feeling Again" to "What Are We Gonna Do?" just a complete album that I needed back in my music collection. My favorite Hubert Laws release.The fact that it is a Bob James production is also a plus."
