Altoist Warren Hill has never claimed to be a jazz player, but even as a would-be pop star he has an identity problem. Hill comes across as a David Sanborn clone on this popular release and seems to have spent much less time working on developing an individual sound than he has posing for cameras; there are eight photos of Hill included in the booklet of this CD. As far as the music goes, this set of originals is essentially derivative if pleasant background music, suitable for dancing but not for close listening.
