A Traveling CD

"Off on a trip to L.A. to spend a week in a hotel, I grabbed this CD and a few others to pass some time. We listened to this one most of the way from San Francisco to L.A. I meant to put something else on, but just couldn't bring myself to take this out of the player. The tune selection is great, the players are all playing their butts off, and that's saying a lot. These guys can really play. Khan is one of my favorite guitarists. He sounds to me what Metheny might be like if he played strictly straight ahead jazz. That's a foolish thing to say, Metheny being my guitar idol and all, but I don't know how else to describe it. This CD is a revelation. The band's sense of rhythm is dead on. You might want to pick this one up."

"The last reviewer hit it dead on. Driving "into the West" with this on is a perfect match. Khan has always been my favorite Jazz guitarist along with Metheny. I can't top that Khan is like "Metheny playing straight-ahead-Jazz" other than it might be unfair to both guitarist, in a way. BOTH are disctinctive and captivating. HIGHly recommended."
A Great Album -- Khan Doing Monk

"Fresh off his monumental work on Steely Dan's Gaucho, Steve went into the studio and cut these fabulous tracks. The three-piece really works, and Ron Carter on bass is exceptional. But it's Khan that really shines -- his creative guitar interpretation of Monk's original angular piano sound makes for heavenly listening, awash with texture, color, and personality. Highly recommended."
