Entertainment Reviews:

JazzTimes - p.115
"It is an album of evocative ballads....Though the song never comes to a full boil, its beautifully drawn dynamic and rhythmic contours make clear how highly developed this band's art has become."

ETERNAL proves (yet again) that saxophonist Branford Marsalis, though no longer a "young lion" of jazz, still has a strong, unique musical voice. This 2004 album begins with "The Ruby and the Pearl," a somber tune that suggests an Argentinean tango. On this selection, Marsalis's soprano sax glides effortlessly over the understated rhythms. The title track is really a tone poem; it tells the story of the universe through both large, sweeping gestures and soft, delicate colors. Over 17 minutes long, this work is an extended improvisation that crescendos little by little, then explodes and collapses on itself; after a pause, the gentle melody reappears. Overall, this is a very reflective, even melancholy record. Here Marsalis is not interested in impressing the listener with awesome chops--he's just interested in creating great music
