—-. Johnny Vidacovich. “Really slick. First class stuff. Great tunes. All the solos are easy smooth and not show off shit. Everybody is one for the music on this record. There is a tremendous amount of dedication and surrender to the music here as the band moves as one collective through the orchestral nature of this music… a very colorful and emotional musical trip... There is no one player that is better than another, they all together make the great musician who plays this music...”. —-.
