AllMusic Review by

Guitarist Joshua Breakstone for the second time pays tribute to France. This trio set, with bassist Louis Petrucciani and drummer Christian Salut, consists of four standards and four of the guitarist's originals. Close interplay between the musicians and an emphasis on ballads makes this set a generally sparse and quiet affair. Highlights include "Autumn Leaves," "A Little Thing I Wrote," a touching version of "You Must Believe in Spring," and a happy "C'est Si Bon." All of Breakstone's recordings are worth picking up.
