AllMusic Review by

Brandon Fields is usually thought of as an R&B-ish jazz alto saxophonist with a sound touched a little by David Sanborn. On this set, he is particularly creative and stretches himself, playing some excellent soprano and tenor in addition to alto. Sometimes the music is funky but it is also quite explorative in spots, with Fields heard throughout at his most lyrical and inventive. Trumpeter/fl├╝gelhornist Walt Fowler is a strong asset, "Phone Sax" (a conversation between Fields' alto and Gina Kronstadt's talking) is humorous, and several of the numbers are memorable. This is one of Brandon Fields' finest recordings; pity that the Nova label has since ceased operations.
