Standards & Shorter
Gordon Danis | Eastchester, New York United States | 09/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On the liner notes to the CD, drummer Steve Davis indicates that the music was to focus on silence, or "what is not played" as much as what is played. Hardly a new notion in jazz going all the way back to early Miles Davis, but a notion more often aspired to than reached.

But on a quirky rendition of Jerome Kerns' "Yesterdays," followed by a gorgeous cover of Wayne Shorter's "Infant Eyes," everything, including the silences, falls into place. A consistently wonderful, almost ambient jazz CD. This is "smooth jazz" for people with minds."
Audiophile Quality SACD-Hybrid

"The fidelity of this hybrid is terrific on a SACD player as well as on a redbook machine. As a rule of thumb more care is taken in recording hybrids vs standard CDs and it shows in this case. Looking for a fine relaxing CD to play after a hard day at work? The soft guitar, percussion, and shimmering cymbals of this very together jazz quartet sure works for me."
