Some very good moments

Like Pat Metheny, most of Lee Ritenour's albums have fallen in the smooth jazz category. Also like Metheny, Ritenour can play "real" jazz with the best of them when he want to. This is album is a case in point. It's still melodic, and the smooth jazz people won't be turned off, but there's enough meat here to keep "serious" jazz fans happy.
Beautiful Guitar Work, Very Classy.
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This CD is really worth having if you like jazz and especially if you like fine guitar playing in the mix. The whole band is top notch and his guitar playing is absolutely flawless. To me this is what a Jazz album should be. Saying that all of the songs are good would be a great understatement. A nice glass of wine and this CD playing make for a very special occasion. Enjoy!"
Flawless renditions of timeless tunes

"Not a fan of Rittenour's fusion music, I was astounded to hear his rendition of Stolen Moments on the radio. This tune, and the rest of the album, is a great example of the finest of today's instrumental perfectionists, playing some great tunes of the heyday of jazz, with production values pleasing to both jazz aesthetes and casual listeners.The tunes are recorded straight and clean without overdubbing. Unlike many direct-to-disc recordings, the playing is unrestrained, yet it achieves the perfection one expects from overdubbed construction. Best of all, these guys really groove together.A nice range of styles and tempos, from the sultry Blue In Green and reflective Haunted Heart, to the lively Uptown and the strident St. Barts. Certainly not "ear candy", but still very pleasing, and therefore an excellent album to help guide one into the deeper waters of jazz. And the rendition of Stolen Moments is a must-listen to any serious jazz afficionado."
