(5 out of 5 stars)

"this CD blew me away. incredible talent, very creative guy charlie watts some VERY hot alto playing!! had a large inpact on my playing as well."
Rates an extra star for including "From One Charlie" set
M. Bromberg | Atlanta, GA United States | 09/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a beautifully-produced live club date with the Charlie Watts Quintet (Peter King on alto sax) and an eight-member string section that emphasizes Parker's romantic mood. The first set includes all of 1991's "From One Charlie" pieces that are now unavailable elsewhere. There are warm and intimate takes of songs associated with Bird -- "Cool Blues," "Dewey's Square," Gerry Mulligan's "Rocker" -- and Bernard Fowler contributes a vocal to "Lover Man." The settings may be a bit lush for listeners wanting more adventurous material (a criticism even of Bird's own recordings with strings). But the project is a terrific gesture of respect on Watts' part for one of his musical heroes, and he's got a career ahead of him should he decide to ever give up that day job!"
Seductive, sultry and all that Jazz!

"Why not enjoy an artist for who they are?..Charlie Watts has on this record given back to music fans a true insight as to who he is. And although he probably got flack from Jazz purists, this album is accesible, enjoyable and gives a great taste of how exciting Jazz music can be."
