"This is an album of exceptional beauty. "My Reverie" is apparently based on a classical piece not known to me by the composer Debussy, but the grace an assurance of the manner in which the melody is stated and restated by Mr. Rollins never fail to move me, and I've been listening to this album since it was issued. Even though the critics at the time damned it with faint praise as a minor Rollins effort, I beg to differ. There are masterful takes on funk and rock-type riffs. There is a wonderful spontaneous, high-spirited feel to a lot of the soloing, with an almost throw-away feel, yet after repeated listenings, everything seems well-formed and thought-out. This album has held up wonderfully over the decades, and never fails to give me pleasure. Thank you, Mr.Rollins."
