AllMusic Review by

Although tenor great Joe Henderson is heard on five of the eight selections, this CD is worth picking up if only for the tightness of the fine trio (a co-op consisting of pianist Louis Scherr, bassist Tommy Cecil and drummer Tony Martucci) and the fine mixture of melodic originals ("G Flat Ballad" is particularly memorable) with three standards; guest cellist Susan Kelly is the lead voice on "Sarabande." Henderson's powerful presence gives listeners an additional reason to search for this straightahead set.
