AllMusic Review by

For this fairly obscure Soul Note album, pianist Monty Alexander is joined by the virtuosic bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Grady Tate who contributes warm baritone ballad vocals to "A Weaver Of Dreams" and "All Blues." Alexander gets in his best playing on his own "Renewal" and "I'll Remember April"; in addition the trio plays a composition apiece by Wes Montgomery and Milt Jackson. The music is what one would expect from Monty Alexander: Oscar Peterson- style bop with some chancetaking and hints of his Jamaican heritage. A tasteful effort.
