AllMusic Review by

Los Angeles-based British expatriate guitarist Chris Standring's eclectic collection of smooth jazz instrumentals contains elements of acid jazz on songs like "A Method to the Madness" and "Shooting Stars," silky R&B on "I Can't Help Myself," and electronica on the dreamy "Kaleidoscope." Standring's fluid, accessible style recalls George Benson at his jazz crossover best, while compositions like "Giant Steps" and "Constellation" are high-quality chill-out mood music.
