Hendrik Meurkens secures his position as the second-best jazz harmonica player (behind Toots Thielemans) with this fine release. Unlike his two earlier Concord recordings, Meurkens sticks to straight-ahead jazz (rather than Brazilian music) on this set, tackling a variety of challenging material (four of the 11 pieces are his originals) with apparent ease. He comes up with fresh statements on such veteran songs as "Whisper Not," "Naima," "Body and Soul," and "Moment's Notice" and his supporting cast (which includes saxophonist Dick Oatts, trombonist Jay Ashby, and pianist Mark Soskin) is consistently strong. This CD gives one an excellent example of Hendrik Meurkens' talents. ~ Scott Yanow

Rating 5.0 Try this one first Music Lover: from GREENVILLE, NY US -- November, 9, 2012

Supported by an ensemble of "A" list supporting musicians, this the Meurkens solo effort to start with. His two collaborations with Charlie Byrd, "Homage to Jobim" & "Hot Club.." are also very highly recommended.
