AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

This is a feel-good "happy jazz" set, about as deep as a TV theme song. Guitarist Chuck Loeb and his sextet (which also includes pianist Andy Laverne, bassist Will Lee and drummer Dave Weckl) create pleasant sounds, but the lightweight performances never rise above the level of background music, except on the heated "Maybe." All of the talented musicians are capable of producing a much more substantial recording.
