AllMusic Review by

This studio set is an excellent outing for trumpeter Jack Walrath who is showcased in a trio with bassist Chip Jackson and drummer Jimmy Madison. Walrath's six originals all have their colorful moments, whether it be "(The Last Remake Of) I Can't Get Started" (which has solos based on the standard's melody rather than its chord changes), "Spherious" (based loosely on Thelonious Monk's interpretation of "Lulu's Back in Town"), the episodic "Baby, You Move Too Fast" and the group improvisation "Spontooneous." Stimulating and thought-provoking music.
