From the up tempo "Accents" to the Haunting "Ruth" this disc is a fine showcase for these talented artists..Perkins exhibits his mystical side and his bop persona with equal grace. Bill Perkins continues to play at a level that has brought him world wide acclaim. He is a legend in the true sense.

Danny Pucillo is a musician that this writer has always admired. His tasteful percussion work is a case study for aspiring Drummers. This CD certainly spotlights his artistry in fine fashion.

Guitarist Ozaki is chosen well. A Pianoless group had better have a Guitar Player that can carry the load....And he accomplishes this with such ease and melodic phrasing that the Piano is not missed at all.

Chris Colangelo is very much in demand as a Bassist and listening to him on this recording it becomes apparent why he is included in the top jazz groups on the music scene...Time is of the essence and he provides it, along with swinging solos that are well thought out and lyrically tasty.

Great CD for any jazz collection...
