"1. It's Ray Bryant 2. Though it is not solo, it is the quintessential Ray Bryant album...almost a greatest hits 3. "Hold Back Mon" is a delight 4. "Prayer Song" feels like private prayer that springs into joyous exaultation...what a way to wrap up this album 5. Stand-up base is SO cool 6. It should be the official Ray Bryant primer 7. "Girl Talk" is a delight 8. You will never take it out of the changer 9. It should be THE official jazz piano album 10. It's Ray Bryant"

"This was Ray's first Pablo album under his own name, a studio date done in 1976 with a trio (George Duvivier [bs] Grady Tate [d]). Everyone plays well and there are numerous highlights. I don't know what the girls are talking about in GIRL TALK, but it's some groovy, funky talk going on, and if it's about a guy, he's one lucky guy. Duvivier also takes a nice bass solo on that one. HOLD BACK MON is a light, airy Bryant tune that has a wonderful day-in-the-park feel about it. Bryant has a terrific way of inflicting the deepest blues feelings into his ballad playing, a la on GOOD MORNING HEARTACHE and LI'L DARLIN'. COLD TURKEY, another composition by Ray, is an up-tempo swinger with a JUMPIN' WITH SYMPHONY SID-like theme to it - a most attractive piece. Ray does some marvelous tension-building things on MANTECA, especially behind the bass and drum solos. But to my ears the best tune on the disc is PRAYER SONG, which is a combination of church music and soul that starts out swinging delicately but builds in power. It's a terrific song played beautifully. Modern piano trio fans will surely dig this CD."
