Notable is pianist Matthew Fries' blues introduction and support for "Willow Weep for Me." His composition "Retro" adds a modern mainstream touch to the session that sets this tune apart from the others with its fresh piano-bass-drums interaction. For John Coltrane's "Impressions" the quartet smokes at a blazing tempo, while on Horace Silver's "Barbara" they waltz comfortably with as much power but in a different mood. Cedar Walton's up-tempo "Firm Roots" creates a place for Kendall to demonstrate his fluid articulation and confident phrasing. Consistent through his latest two recordings and several bands, Paul Kendall offers a fresh sound and familiar songs intended for the general audience.
