"This was his 25th album for the Concord label, the first being in 1977. The man makes playing tenor sax seem so effortless that I think the critics tend to view his playing with an air of nonchalance, i.e. the usual level.....no new ground. Let's face it.....whether Scott plays a beautiful ballad or an uptempo tune, the fluidity and flawless execution of his improvisation and expression after so many years tend to make one expect nothing less.......it has become a benchmark! The proof is in the listening......and whether or not his style of swing or mainstream jazz appeals to your ear. For me, I know I have more than half of his releases in my collection.This cd has a nice mix of tempos, and for my book, the man can't be beat on a ballad!......maybe Harry Allen is in that category.This is a typical Scott Hamilton set, one that will be appreciated by tenor sax aficonados, good jazz quartets. mainstream or swing either singly or in any combination. You can't go wrong with music by Scott Hamilton!!"
