AllMusic Review by

Also released as Gin & Penatonic, flugelhornist Franco Ambrosetti's third in a series of consistently rewarding recordings for Enja has a particularly strong group (including tenor saxophonist Michael Brecker, John Clark on French horn, pianist Kenny Kirkland, bassist Buster Williams and drummer Daniel Humair) stretching out on three originals (two by Franco and one from his father Flavio), plus a brief rendition of George Gruntz's "More Wings for Wheelers." The music is solid post-bop, and Clark's French horn is a major plus in the ensembles.
