CD Reviews

One of the best Jazz Artist around
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album keeps traditonal jazz alive. There is no crossover here. This album will remind you of being in a smoky jazz club enjoying the music and the laid back surroundings. I will be adding this album to my jazz collection this is a must have CD."
Here is beauty pure and simple.

"Every track is a delight, just put it on and let it go. It very beautifully showcases the trumpet as a jazz instrument and reaffirms Roy Hargrove as a main interpreter of the standards. This CD is a good introduction into jazz for anyone not yet acquainted. It is also one of my favorites to put on at night for go-to-sleep music."
His playing is at its most unemotional and mechanical here

"I'm sorry but this is at best decent aural wallpaper. Hargrove has done so much better work and much more inspired blowing on albums like "Family" and "Tenor of Our Time." He offers nothing unique to these ballads at all. There is no interpretation or romance. These are mostly very dry, mechanical renditions of standards. "Family," "Tenor of . . ," and "Parker's Mood" are far more interesting and pleasurable to listen to."
