AllMusic Review by

Somewhere between the smooth silkiness of R&B and the technically proficient slickness of jazz lies the genre known as quiet storm, which artists like Kenny G have ridden to popularity. With its programmed beats, laid-back grooves, stylized production, and romance, it's a bit of surprise to hear someone like Richard Elliott signed to Verve's subsidiary label, GRP, try his hand at this, but he has solid chops, and his sax soloing fits right in the quiet storm groove. The title track and "Work All Night" make things a little funky at times.
