AllMusic Review by

The second of two Lp's featuring the advanced altoist Anthony Braxton interpreting jazz standards once again matches him with pianist Hank Jones, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Victor Lewis. Braxton's flights on such tunes as "Moment's Notice," "Groovin' High" and Thelonious Monk's "Trinkle, Tinkle" are far beyond the bop-oriented accompaniment of his sidemen but this spirited outing does have its memorable moments.
