AllMusic Review by

Pianist/vocalist Ellyn Rucker's second Capri release (a trio outing with bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Marvin "Smitty" Smith) is even better than her first. A particularly strong pianist soloist who is also the perfect accompanist for her soft-toned vocals, Rucker has long fallen into the "underrated" category due to her decision to live in Denver. However, as she shows throughout this CD, she is a world-class performer who deserves to be much better-known.
