On trumpeter Stacy Rowles' only album as a leader, she teams up with her father (veteran pianist Jimmy Rowles) for a set of generally exquisite music. With the assistance of Herman Riley on tenor and flute, bassist Chuck Berghofer, and drummer Donald Bailey, the two Rowles play a variety of lyrical material, including a moving duet on "Lotus Blossom." Stacy, who has emphasized ballads throughout her career, is in fine form on this set, although one wonders when she will get around to recording an encore.
