AllMusic Review by

Pianist Mike Garson's debut as a leader shows off his virtuosity and versatility on a set of unaccompanied solos. The music is consistently colorful and full of surprises, ranging from the melodic to bordering on the avant-garde. Highlights include a tribute to Chick Corea, "Over the Rainbow," "Chopin Visits Brooklyn" and "Avant Gershwin." The Fantasy label is long overdue to release this underrated gem on CD.
