".. one of the jazz world's most immediately recognisable and unfussily virtuosic pianists.. This album utilises all the musical vocabulary Riley has acquired over the past quarter-century ­ his trademark walking baselines under ringing, wonderfully cluttered right-hand improvisations; his delightful visits to "disguised" standards (here "Lover Man"); his tumbling runs interspersed with clanging percussiveness ­ to produce music of rare power and strange, pungent beauty. A genuine original at the peak of his powers." Chris Parker, BBC Music Magazine.
