AllMusic Review by

This CD is a disappointment, not because of the repertoire -- which ranges from the theme of "Beauty and the Beast" to Jobim, other Brazilian tunes and originals -- or the electronic setting, which often features the synth of Phil Markowitz and Vic Juris' guitar -- but because of Dave Liebman's tone. Normally a brilliant soprano saxophonist, Liebman sounds distressingly out of tune on most of the selections, a problem that probably could have been fixed quickly. As it is, one can only hear the potential of what this accessible set could have been.
