AllMusic Review by

This trio session with bassist Alec Dankworth and drummer Clark Tracey finds pianist David Newton in a rather low key mood. His interpretations of "The Night We Called It a Day" and solo take of "The Way You Look Tonight," the disc's final track, are dramatic and lyrical. His original songs, however, just don't stand up to repeated hearings, serving more or less as background music regardless of the tempo. If more tracks had the feeling of the finale, the overall CD would be more memorable.
