I reviewed most of the music collected here in JJI, March, 1985. I enthused about it, later making it one of my Records of the Year, and the passing of the years has done nothing to change my mind, other than to think it even better now than then.

Richard Palmer, Jazz Journal International


This is a cracking album, thoroughly recommended.
