"Unlike the usual light-weight, fluffy, elevator-style fusion by Watanabe, this is a great bebop album in the true tradition of Charlie Parker. Watanabe plays beautiful lines over the well known cord changes with very solid support by the rythm section.Watanabe proves that he is a great sax player after all.A must buy for Parker fans."

"Great bop CD with a line up of all time greats, At the time the best one two punch duo in the game Ron Carter on Bass Tony Williams on Drums. Strieght forward Jazz right out of the mid 50s. Parker's Mood is so sweet. Sadao had great chops thru-out the entire CD. And Tony what more can I say. Solid choice for the avid jazz collector."
