“In his career, bassist David Enos’ large tone, versatility and ability to sound thoughtful even at the most rapid tempos have been major assets to every setting in which he appears. On his new CD, Enos and his top-notch quartet interpret ten well-known jazz standards. But, although each of the songs have been played a countless number of times through the years, they have never before sounded quite like this. Their chords have been modernized and re-harmonized, fresh new introductions and transitions have been added, and the rhythm section, while swinging with subtlety, has a continuous conversation with the lead voices…the playing of all four musicians is heard at its most creative as they really dig into these tunes, emerging with many moments of unexpected beauty.” - Scott Yanow, Jazz Journalist
