AllMusic Review by

Pianist Bill O'Connell is not exactly a household name but his CD is quite memorable. The quality of the originals (seven by O'Connell, three from bassist Charles Fambrough and one from soprano saxophonist Howard Alston) is strong, the melodies are often catchy, Grover Washington, Jr., has two good outings on soprano and O'Connell's work on piano and electric keyboards does a very effective job of combining together aspects of both so-called contemporary jazz and hard bop. This is accessible jazz that is also creative.
