A classic

"Mike Brecker, Elaine Elias, Peter Erskine, Eddie Gomez, and Mike Manieri all star on this first "Steps Ahead" album. They were forced to change their name from Steps to avoid a lawsuit from a similarly named company. Anyway, the music is absolutely fantastic, all players really stretch and obviously enjoy themselves. Along with Smokin' in the Pit, this would be my top pick for this group, counting only the Brecker including releases. Highly recommended."
Simply great.

"What a difference a drummer makes. I love Steps with Steve Gadd, but the change to Peter Erskine on this record is like going from a luxury car to a sportster. The crisp style of Erskine fits in really nice with the music.

I don't want to repeat what everyone else has already said, so I'll just agree that all the players are in top form on this one.

I certainly encourage listeners to hear the Steve Gadd incarnation of this group as well, or even better check out Three Quartets by Chick Corea.

"cream of the crop musicians playing superb jazz. The track 'Islands' is one of the most beautiful and well crafted tunes I have ever heard. The ensemble playing on that track is excellent and tasteful, as are the solos. Peter Erskine's drumming is flawless. This CD will make a great additon to any music collection. No showboating here, just excellent musicians playing some great jazz."
