AllMusic Review by

Walt Weiskopf performs seven standards and three originals on this quartet set with pianist Joel Weiskopf, bassist Drew Gress and drummer Steve Davis. Weiskopf, who has written an instructional book on John Coltrane's style, sounds too close for comfort to 'Trane on this otherwise enjoyable set. He is certainly a technically gifted player and his versions of such tunes as "You Go to My Head," "Moonlight on the Ganges," "Some Other Time" and "I Wish I Knew" are reasonably adventurous but Weiskopf should really work on developing his own musical personality.
