"Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen has always been one of those consistently strong bass players that have lent their talent to nearly all of the great jazz artists for decades. This album, under his own leadership, shows a slightly different side of the artist. The music owes as much to european music as to blues. Is all of the music here "jazz"? Who cares. What matters is that the music presented here is consistantly enjoyable. The musicians, which include Ulf Wakenius on guitars and Jonas Johansen on drums, bring a subtle beauty to the music. The guests, which are many, include Phil Woods on saxaphone, Oscar Peterson on piano, and vocalists Monica Zetterfund and Monique. Of special note is the wonderful track "Summer Song" which features the artist Monique on vocals. Believe me when I tell you that this track alone is worth the price of the cd. All in all, you simply can't go wrong with this very enjoyable album."
