Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 2/7/97, p.70
"...Green has ditched the faux funkiness that marred his recordings and has become a mainstream modernist..." - Rating: A-
Down Beat - 5/97, pp.66-67
3.5 Stars (out of 5) - "...Green's playing continues to develop as a distillation of such mainstream influences as Bill Evans and Herbie Hancock, and his writing has evolved condiserably from early projects..."

Pianist Benny Green proves himself to be a seasoned composer on this collection of originals. "The Sexy Mexy" nods to Horace Silver with some crisp unison guitar from Russell Malone. The upbeat "Central Park South" features Stanley Turrentine, while the pianist's hypnotic "Thursday Lullaby" shows off his considerable chops. Ron Carter and Lewis Nash round out the capable rhythm section. ~ Ken Dryden
