AllMusic Review by

Bassist Bob Badgley leads a straight-ahead jazz trio on this set, featuring pianist Stefan Karlsson and drummer John Abraham. Despite the title of the CD (which is actually a Karlsson original), most of the music is not tranquil ballads but instead includes medium-tempo pieces and a couple romps. Karlsson is generally the lead voice, but Badgley contributes stimulating basslines while Abraham is subtle in support. Highlights include "You've Changed," "Some Other Time," a cooking version of "When You Wish Upon a Star," and "You and the Night and the Music."
