"This is either the best or the second best George Howard record there is, depending on who you ask ("Love Will Follow" being the other). In any event, it's a great smooth jazz record from one of the originators of the form, and wears it's age well. You have to get it for the first 3-4 tracks alone. They're pure smooth jazz, and thet just don't make them as engaging or soulful as Howard did anymore. A must for any smooth jazz head, family bar-b-q or candlelight dinner at home."

"If you follow the growth of George Howard through his career in music, it is an extraordinary journey. From his early days of working with Grover Washington Jr., to his funk period of the 80's, he unfolds in the 90's with not only his funk left in tact but an added inner peace and beauty. "You and Me" and "Piano in the Dark" are extraordinary in depth. No other jazz sax can compare to the accomplishment of this artist. Each experience into this cd deepens. Perhaps a predecessor to the "smooth jazz" of the 2000's, George Howard offers something different."

"IT'S FUNNY WHEN LISTEN TO THIS PARTICULAR ALBUM, AND GOOD FEELING I GET FROM IT.MY FIRST TIME I HEARD ANY OF GH STUFF WAS ON HIS STEPPIN OUT ALBUM, THEN REFLECTIONS WITH THE SONG "ONE LOVE" JOHNNY GILL SANG. AT A TIME WHEN I WAS DEFENDING MY COUNTRY, LISTENING TO ANY OF GEORGE'S MUSIC ALWAYS MADE ME FEEL ALMOST YOUNG AGAIN. GOD BLESSED US ALL WHO WERE FORTUNATE TO HEAR HIS MUSIC,AND MY HEART HURT WHEN I HEARD OF HIS PASSING. SO MANY BEAUTIFUL SOUNDS THAT WOULD NOT BE CREATED, MAY YOU REST IN PEACE GEORGE HOWARD AND YOUR MUSIC LIVE FOREVER."
