AllMusic Review by

This CD contains the type of music that trumpeter Freddie Hubbard should have been creating during the 1980s and '90s. The originals are both challenging and swinging, Hino utilizes a strong group of individualists and the cornetist's own playing is consistently fiery and explorative, most influenced by Hubbard. Hino uses his regular band of the period (a sextet with tenor saxophonist Roger Byam, guitarist John Hart, pianist Onaje Allan Gumbs, bassist Michael Formanek and drummer Michael Carvin) and their familiarity with each other's playing really shows on the tight but spontaneous session.
