AllMusic Review by

Jazz for Those Peaceful Moments is a collection of relaxed standards and ballads performed mostly by musicians with hard bop and post-bop backgrounds, including Sonny Stitt, Red Garland, Ricky Ford, Woody Shaw, Michael Carvin, Russell Gunn, Donald Brown, Cecil Brooks III, and Darrell Grant. The songs don't necessarily hang together in a musically coherent way, but the performances are generally very good, and the collection does do a good job of setting the mood it aims to create.
