AllMusic Review by

A Grammy nominee for Best Instrumental Jazz Solo, Haynes spent most of his career backing others before finally breaking out and showing off his excellent skills on the raps. He's played with the biggest names in the business, and it shows; Haynes is polished and rarely veers off course, keeping his rhythms clean and tight, yet oh so swinging.
