AllMusic Review by

Art Hodes recorded so many solo piano albums in the 1970s and '80s that it is difficult to call any particular one definitive, but his Sackville outing is an excellent all-around showcase. The pianist mostly sticks to slower tempos, with "Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone" being an exception, and even if few of the songs on this date are technically blues, Hodes gives each of the tunes a strong blues feeling. A fine effort.
