Jan P. Dennis | Monument, CO USA | 09/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For me, a CD often has more value than merely the sounds it contains. This CD, which I discovered when I was first getting into the wonders of creative improvised music, has a certain hold on me that goes beyond simple nostalgia.Part of it is that it's a great CD. Period. Besides the beautiful lyricism of perhaps Lightsey's most successful date (excepting, perhaps, some of his sides with The Leaders), it has on bass a young Santi DeBriano, probably just off the boat from Panama, and the incomparable Jerry Gonzales on trumpet and percussion, on loan, one presumes, from his fledgling group The Fort Apache Band.The title cut is an achingly beautiful slow ballad, surely Lightsey's finest composition. Beautifully rendered by the quartet, it sets a definite tone and a very high standard for the rest of the CD, which the group rarely fails to duplicate. Other highlights are a very slow version of the classic Estate and the playful Nandi, which showcases DeBriano's nascent writing skills.Maybe this isn't the most important jazz CD ever recorded, but it's a personal favorite from my rather ample collection."
A genius.

"Lightsey is a genius--boppish and behind the beat at the same time. He's an unknown genius, but a genius all the same. If you like horizontal playing, long flowing lines, and the sense that there's always another beautful chorus over the horizon, this is your man."
