Wonderful jazz omelette sans fromage
Quickhappy | Big city, big country | 09/16/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Skip the cheese, pleez: this album is a creative, textured breakfast. I'm amazed at how disregarded Marcus Roberts is: the guy's a real talent: he's not just another blind piano player! I've heard him called "unoriginal" and "scared to depart from the confines of classic jazz." Ridiculous! Yes, the sound here won't upset fans of 1950s-1960s Miles or 'Trane or Rollins or Bud Powell. Yes, this soul flows in that vein. That's a criticism? Damn, Stan, let the cat play. This album is a marvelous concoction and I love it. Tune out the critics and tune in to Marcus."

"Simply beautiful music from a truly gifted pianist. Reflecting Mirrors and the title track are my stand-outs, but the whole disc is just wonderful. At times it makes you wanna cut a rug and then it turns to something mellow and dreamy. That bass and drum just don't quit."
