This is an unusual set by pianist Ted Rosenthal. Most of the music is relatively straightahead with worthy solos from vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, Donald Harrison on soprano and tenor, and guitarist Kevin Eubanks. But the opening title cut is a poppish vocal by Harrison that has little to do with what follows and some of the songs utilize funky rhythms, extra percussion and a couple of brass players. Rosenthal's playing throughout is consistent and even with the extra production values this set is worth picking up by hard bop collectors.
