"Thanks to this outstanding Vocalion edition we can delight with this extraordinary album, that aged very well and stands as one of the best european jazz albuns of all time!!!! It's really amazing how beauty sparkles all over the record time, but specially "Temple Dancer" (incredible bass cadence!!), "Beautiful Thing" (astonishingly beautiful, really!!) and the eponymous title are superior music!!!! It is sad that musicians/composers with the quality of Michael Garrick never been mentioned in jazz anthologies and All Music Reviews, what kind of attitude is this??? if it is for not knowing, they are missing important things, but if it is the fact that this record never had a digital version, well, here it is available now and so don't loose time including it in the next Jazz Anthology, people!!!
Certainly we need to mention first the lovely voice of Norma Winstone that shines in six of the eight themes of this record, often reminding us the darkened beauty of Barbara Gaskin, in her Spirogyra/Hatfield And The North/National Health years, but Norma is supreme in this context...and the top-class full talented musicians that perform with true passion and heart...
