AllMusic Review by

An excellent modern mainstream guitarist, Michael Musillami at times recalls Wes Montgomery and Jim Hall, while his improvisations show the influence of pianist Bill Evans in spots. Musillami has an attractive tone, improvises inventively, and works particularly well with the quartet, especially in his interplay with bassist Dave Shapiro. His set consists of five jazz standards, one obscurity (Bill Evans' "Comrade Conrad"), and the guitarist's bossa nova "Those Times." The result is an excellent modern mainstream jazz date that features the underrated Michael Musillami and a fine East Coast rhythm section. Well worth checking out.
