AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This LP (along with four other live sets from the period) has been reissued on a Mosaic CD box set. Unlike some of his mood music albums, this date has variety in tempos and moods along with plenty of solo space for the leader, vibraphonist Emil Richards and guitarist Toots Thielemans (who switches to harmonica on "Caravan"). Armando Peraza's Latin percussion joins the group on two of the nine songs. Highlights of this well-rounded set include "September in the Rain," "Roses of Picardy," "I'll Remember April" and "East of the Sun." Get the Mosaic set.
