AllMusic Review by

This solo recital by pianist Randy Weston is up to his usual musical standards, but the packaging of the Pausa LP, which does not list a recording date, the fact that this is a solo session, or even the songs on the back cover, is a bit appalling. Weston performs Benny Golson's "Out of the Past" and six of his originals, including "Monk Steps." None of Weston's songs on this date caught on as standards, but the typically percussive and melodic (if quirky) music is enjoyable.
