It's Sonny Clark----buy it.
bruce horner | 08/16/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Initially I didn't expect much from this album, being a fan of Clark's originals, and of all the horn-led goove-a-thons on his other albums. But the relaxed intimacy of these tracks sure grows on you! Sonny's uncluttered, elegantly swinging style is always a pleasure, but the lack of competing solo instruments here (saxophones, trumpets, trombones, vibes, etc.) lets it stand out in all it's austere glory. Though this album can function admirably as ingratiating background music, close and repeated listening is amply repaid."
Beautiful jazz that grows with each careful listening

"This is music to savour. I personally enjoy Clark's rolling, blues-soaked style better in this trio setting rather than with horns.There's plenty to unravel here, and its all performed in a spirit of relaxed invention.Music for the head and the heart! And,on a more prosaic note, the alternate takes are not sequenced after each other - a pet hate!"

"I originally got this just to be a completist. After all, one of the main things I like about Clark is his talent for originals. But boy, does this album grow on you! Shouldn't be such a surprise, since he was always a fine interpreter of standards on his horn-combo albums. This more intimate setting is a nice change of pace. Highly recommended."
