AllMusic Review by

On what was only Victor Feldman's second album as a leader in six years, the multi-instrumentalist stuck to piano and electric keyboards to perform a mostly straight-ahead jazz set. Assisted by either Chuck Domanico or Monty Budwig on bass, drummer Colin Bailey, and a guest appearance by trumpeter-vocalist Jack Sheldon (on the second of two versions of the memorable "Haunted Ballroom"), Feldman is quite creative on four of his originals and particularly on fresh versions of four standards: "Limehouse Blues," Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely," "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," and "St. Thomas."
