AllMusic Review by

The third Joe Carter LP for his Empathy label has the quiet guitarist performing three jazz standards, two of his originals and Chick Corea's "Day Waves," in a quartet with fl├╝gelhornist Art Farmer, bassist Harvie Swartz, and drummer Akira Tana. Hopefully, all of the early Empathy sets will be reissued on CD someday, for each one serves as a fine example of subtle improvisation, based in but not held captive by the bop tradition.
