AllMusic Review by

Former Late Night with David Letterman guitarist Hiram Bullock turns in one impressive session on this jazzy ten-track collection. As always, Bullock's guitar alternately sings gently and squalls with an almost rock-like intensity. The big surprise is that Hiram spices up his consummate picking with surprising vocal turns on "What You Won't Do for Love," "We're Gonna Get It Right," "Montevideo," the humorous "Bean Burrito," Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing" and the title track. Bullock's impressive guitar chops are well to the fore throughout, even on the vocal numbers with bluesy and jazzy showcases on "Amazonas" and "And the Melody Lingers On (A Night In Tunisia)." With strong Latin percussion and a distinct salsa bent to the background framing Bullock's strong guitar work, this is a delightful album without a weak cut in the batch.
